Responding to reports that senior government adviser Dominic Cummings broke the government's lock-down guidelines, Acting Leader of the Liberal Democrats Ed Davey said:
"Millions of people have made incredible sacrifices over the past three months to do their bit to stop the coronavirus. They have been forced to cancel their normal daily lives as well as important family gatherings like weddings. Many have had to witness the funerals of loved ones through video conference.
“They expect senior members of the Prime Minister’s office to stay home too.
"If Dominic Cummings has broken the guidelines he will have to resign, it is as simple as that."
