Photos of Boris Johnson holding beer at lockdown birthday party handed over to Met Police, sources allege
The Metropolitan Police have received several photographs, including one of Boris Johnson holding a beer at his birthday party in June 2020, say sources.
Sources allege that the Prime Minister was captured raising a can of Estrella beer in a toast in one of the photos, which was taken on June 19, 2020.
In another photograph, he is supposedly seen standing next to Chancellor Rishi Sunak.
According to the Mirror’s sources, several of the pictures given to police were taken by the official Number 10 photographer.
Downing Street has admitted that staff “gathered briefly in in the Cabinet Room after a meeting to wish the Prime Minister a happy birthday”, however, insisted that the celebrations lasted “less than ten minutes”.
At the time of the alleged party, the general public were banned from holding social gatherings indoors, due to Covid restrictions.
