Mounting calls for Dominic Cummings's resignation have reached his own party.

Cummings ignored the government advice to 'stay at home' despite having Covid-19 symptoms, taking multiple cross-country trips from London to Durham.

Whilst Boris Johnson and senior cabinet members defended Cummings, some Conservative MPs have expressed anger at the senior advisor's flouting of the rules.

At the time of writing, these are the Conservative MPs who have publicly called on Dominic Cummings to resign:

Peter Aldous, Waveney

Steve Baker, Wycombe

Peter Bone, Wellingborough and Rushden

Damian Collins, Folkestone and Hythe

William Wragg (Hazel Grove) has retweeted Brexiteer Steve Baker's tweet in which he stated that "Dominic Cummings must go".

George Freeman (Mid Norfolk) has called on Cummings to "apologise".

Many of the calls for Cummings's resignation were made via Twitter and Facebook.

Former immigration minister Caroline Nokes said that she had made her "views clear to the whip".

Peter Aldous retracted his earlier support of Cummings to say that the senior advisor should "stand down".

Digital Culture, Media and Sport Committee chairman Damian Collins called Cummings's track record into question.

Sir Peter Bone was one of the first to call for Cummings's resignation, telling multiple news outlets that he clearly broke advice and had to go.

Craig Whittaker described Cummings's position as "untenable".

Several other Conservative MPs have put out statements that they have received high volumes of correspondence from their constituents regarding Dominic Cummings and have either passed the information on or will respond after the bank holiday weekend,

There are also reports of anger amongst other MPs within the party which has not yet become public.

Many of Johnson's cabinet have defended Cummings, including Rishi Sunak and Michael Gove.

Anger at Cummings's refusal to resign has even reached the Daily Mail.

Criticism has also come from Keir Starmer and even, possibly, the Civil Service. Cummings has even been heckled by his own neighbours.
