A long-awaited report into claims of lockdown-breaking parties at British prime minister Boris Johnson’s offices was published in part on Monday (31), criticising “failures of leadership” that allowed events to go ahead.

Political and public anger at the revelations put Johnson’s position as leader under threat, but senior civil servant Sue Gray has been forced not to go into detail on all events due to a separate police probe.

After interviewing more than 70 people about 16 events held in 2020 and last year, Gray said what she could say was “extremely limited” owing to the Metropolitan police’s intervention.
