Dominic Cummings or the national interest? Legislator Grills Johnson

"From Monday, up to six people will be able to meet outside as long as those from different households remain two metres apart".

Boris Johnson said that all five tests required for the next phase of lockdown easing to begin have been met, adding: "The result is we can moved forward with adjusting the lockdown on Monday". See PA story HEALTH Coronavirus.

Both Cummings and the Prime Minister had repeatedly insisted he did nothing wrong by driving from London to Durham in late March, nor by visiting Barnard Castle in mid-April on their way back to London.

Boris Johnson has given hope that pubs could reopen earlier than expected, but when can we expect to return to our locals?

Previously people were only able to meet one person from another household in a park or public space.

"These changes mean that friends and family can start to meet their loved ones - perhaps seeing both parents at once or both grandparents at once". Minimising contact wih others is still the best way to prevent transmission.

In an indication of the difficulties Mr Cummings' actions are causing at the top of Government, ministers were forced to deny that a review was being launched into fines issued to other people travelling with their families.

The UK has one of the the widest physical contact gaps in the world to counter coronavirus transmission double the one metre gap recommended by the World Health Organisatio

In an email to her Portsmouth North constituents, seen by The Guardian, she said: "Other families have been faced with the same situation Mr Cummings and chosen to stay put".

I applaud him for sticking by his man, but I'm afraid Mr Cummings should stand down.

He added: "I think what we need to do really is to move on and to get on to how we're going to sort out coronavirus which is really I think the overwhelming priority of the people of this country".

He said: "I've said quite a lot on this matter already and what I also note is that what Durham police said was that they were going to take no action and that the matter was closed".

"And I intend to draw a line under the matter, as I said yesterday to the Parliamentary Liaison Committee".

Asked whether the government's "moral authority" had been undermined by Mr Cummings' actions and his own defence of them, Mr Johnson said: "I, of course, am deeply sorry for all the hurt and pain and anxiety that people have been going through throughout this period - this country has been going through a, frankly, most hard time".
