Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Chancellor Rishi Sunak are both set to receive fines as part of an investigation into lockdown parties in Downing Street.

The duo will be fined for breaching Covid-19 regulations following allegations of lockdown parties in Downing Street and Whitehall, a No 10 spokeswoman has said.

“We don’t have any more details, but we’ll let you know when we do.”

More than 50 dismissals for fines have been made following lockdown parties in Downing Street and Whitehall, police said.

The Metropolitan Police said at least 30 additional fixed fine notices will be issued by the ACRO Criminal Records Office. This represents an increase from the 20 referrals for Fixed Penalty Notices (FPNs) that the force said had been made by the end of March.

Scotland Yard said it was “making every effort to move this investigation forward quickly”, with the possibility of further fines to come.
