Boris Johnson can be seen raising a glass at a leaving party in Downing Street during the second lockdown.

ITV News obtained four images showing the Prime Minister with a drink in his hand while stood behind a table littered with wine bottles and food.

The broadcaster said the pictures were taken at the November 13 2020 leaving party for then-director of communications Lee Cain.

Eight days earlier, Mr Johnson had imposed England’s second national lockdown, which lasted four weeks.

A No 10 spokeswoman said: “The Cabinet Office and the Met Police have had access to all information relevant to their investigations, including photographs.

“The Met have concluded their investigation and Sue Gray will publish her report in the coming days, at which point the Prime Minister will address Parliament in full.”
