Claims that Dominic Cummings broke lockdown twice are ‘not true’, Grant Shapps says

Transportation Secretary Grant Shapps has actually informed Sky News claims Boris Johnson’s leading advisor broke the lockdown twice are “not true”.

The prime minister’s right-hand guy had actually currently confessed that he drove 260 miles from London to Durham with his better half and young kid in late March to self-isolate at a family property regardless of stringent constraints versus long-distance journeys.

Now, the Sunday Mirror and The Observer claim he made a second journey to Durham and was seen there on 19 April – 5 days after being photographed in Downing Street on his go back to Westminster.

Dominic Cummings has actually been implicated of breaking lockdown a second time

Inquired about the fresh claims, Mr Shapps informed Sophy Ridge on Sunday: “I definitely understand that the first one you discuss, of taking a trip back up (to Durham), I understand that is not true.

” I hesitate I do not understand (about Barnard Castle) however if that date was true that would have been outside the 14- day duration. I’m scared I do not have the details on that.

“But I do know it is not the case that he has travelled backwards and forwards, which seemed to be a major part of the stories I saw in the paper today.”

In the most recent claims, Mr Cummings was apparently found by a member of public in Houghall Woods near his moms and dads’ Durham home on 19 April.

And a week previously, the documents declare he was seen in Barnard Castle, 30 miles far from the city, throughout the duration he was thought to be self-isolating.

No photographic proof has actually been released, and the reports are based upon the statements of 2 eyewitness.
