Dominic Cummings gave a statement to the public following the uproar that he broke lockdown rules twice while and his wife had coronavirus symptoms.
The key adviser to Boris Johnson explained why he had made a 260 mile trip from London to Durham to seek help and childcare from his parents.
Cummings recounted why he had taken this journey which many have interpreted as unnecessary when so many have followed the government's advice and refrained from visiting loved one, even those who had been infected with Covid-19.
Cummings was initially supposed to give the statement in the Downing Street rose garden at 3 pm then it was moved to 4 pm but Cummings didn't appear until gone 4:30. As you can imagine people were in uproar that he had basically kept the nation waiting on a Bank Holiday afternoon.
If Dominic Cummings turned up this late to the job centre he’d be sanctioned
