  • Dominic Cummings’ lockdown journey from London to County Durham has been slammed as “most unwise” and labelled “concerning” by the region’s acting police and crime commissioner.
  • Number 10’s claim that his actions – effectively travelling four hours while infected to use elderly relatives for childcare – remained within the government’s own guidelines have been met with astonishment.
  • In a tweet which will be seen as astonishing even by many Conservative voters, foreign secretary Dominic Raab, insisted that Mr Cummings’ actions were all fine.
