Nick Thomas-Symonds MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, responding to reports about Durham police’s investigation into Dominic Cummings, said:
“The police have confirmed what we all knew, that Dominic Cummings broke the rules he helped to write. The country cannot afford for this saga to carry on. Only Boris Johnson can draw a line under it.
“Keir Starmer has said that if he was Prime Minister, he would have sacked Dominic Cummings. Boris Johnson should follow that advice.
“If he does not act then he will send a clear message that there is one rule for his closest adviser and another for the British people.”
