Downing Street Labelled ‘the Most Lawbreaking Workplace in Britain’
In light of receiving more than 100 fines dished out to people working in Downing Street for Partygate breaches of Covid laws, Scotland Yard revealed today.
In the first update in a month, detectives working on the Operation Hillman probe into boozy gatherings in the corridors of power have doubled the number of fixed-penalty notices (FPNs) issued.
The last update, which took place before the local election campaign period, said there had been 50 fines for officials and politicians.
Downing Street indicated that Boris Johnson has not received a new fine. He previously paid a £50 FPN for attending his birthday Party in June 2020 which indoor gatherings were against the law.
Labour MP Chris Bryant dubbed Downing Street ‘the most lawbreaking workplace in Britain by a country mile’ based on the new fines.
