As many as 100 people were invited to a “bring-your-own-booze” drinks event in the Downing Street garden during the first lockdown, the BBC understands. Please subscribe HERE http://bit.ly/1rbfUog

The Metropolitan Police said it was in contact with the government over “widespread reporting relating to alleged breaches” of Covid rules.

Witnesses have told the BBC the PM and his wife attended the gathering on 20 May 2020.

But Boris Johnson has declined to say whether he was among those there.

Newsnight’s Political Editor Nick Watt reports.

Emma Barnett is joined by shadow attorney general Emily Thornberry.
