PRIME Minister Boris Johnson and Chancellor Rishi Sunak will be fined by the police for breaking Covid lockdown laws.
They received notification from the Metropolitan Police that they would be given fixed penalty notices, it was confirmed today (April 12).
Police are still investigating alleged Covid law-breaking at 12 gatherings in Whitehall and Downing Street.
So far, more than 50 fines have been handed out.
A spokesperson for No10 said they had not been informed which event the fine was linked to.
According to the BBC, Sir Keir said it showed the Conservatives were "totally unfit to govern", adding: "Britain deserves better.
"Boris Johnson and Rishi Sunak have broken the law and repeatedly lied to the British public. They must both resign."
Liberal Democrat leader Sir Ed Davey called for Parliament – which is currently on its Easter recess – to be recalled to hold a no confidence vote in the prime minister.
He added: "This is a government in crisis neglecting a country in crisis."
Reports of parties being held in Downing Street during Covid lockdowns in 2020 and 2021 first emerged in December last year.
Mr Johnson initially insisted that "guidelines were followed at all times".
