Boris Johnson’s chief adviser accused of breaking lockdown rules

Published on May 22, 2020 by

The Prime Minister’s chief adviser, Dominic Cummings, travelled out of London during the lockdown while ill with coronavirus symptoms. He was questioned by the police after travelling to Durham in an apparent breach of the lockdown rules.

It came as the government announced a new £1,000 fine for anyone arriving in the UK from abroad and failing to self-isolate for 14 days. The new quarantine rule is being introduced from June 8th. Ministers say it will help prevent a second wave of coronavirus infections.
