Boris Johnson is facing more calls to sack his chief adviser Dominic Cummings, following his decision to drive his family hundreds of miles — from London to Durham — during the lockdown.

Dozens of Conservative MPs have now called for him to step down. A government minister, Douglas Ross, has resigned his post, in protest at Mr Cummings’s controversial interpretation of the lockdown rules.

Some public health experts are warning that the arguments over Dominic Cummings will make it harder to persuade the public to obey the rules, as the UK gradually navigates its way out of the coronavirus lockdown.
