Police asked to investigate Dominic Cummings’ lockdown trip to the North East
The police have been formally asked to investigate Dominic Cummings’ lockdown visit.
Durham Police are to “establish the facts” surrounding the 260-mile trip from London to the North East.
Steve White, acting police and crime commissioner, has written to Durham’s chief constable Jo Farrell.
He’s asked her to “establish the facts concerning any potential breach of the law or regulations in this matter at any juncture.”
Mr Cummings have denied breaking the lockdown law.
And, he’s been supported by the Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
Education Secretary Gavin Williamson said today:
“Dominic Cummings made it clear to the Prime Minister that he didn’t break the law, I absolutely believe that assurance.
“You wouldn’t expect someone to be not giving the absolute categoric truth to the Prime Minister.”
