The Metropolitan Police have announced that the partygate investigation is now over and the Prime Minister will face “no further action” Downing Street has confirmed.

The Met Police issued a total of 126 fines and some Downing Street staff received more than on fixed penalty notice.

Boris Johnson has made history after being the first sitting Prime Minister to have been found to break the law, more over breaking the very laws that he set during lockdown.

The long awaited Sue Gray report is set to surface which could go either way for the Prime Minister and the Conservative Party.

Scotland Yard’s acting deputy commissioner Helen Ball said on Thursday, “In total we have made 126 referrals for a fixed-penalty notice to be issued.

“Some of those referrals were for more than one fixed-penalty notice to be issued – 28 people have been referred for between two and five fixed-penalty notices.”

She added, “The whole of the pandemic was extraordinary times, wasn’t it, and many things happened that haven’t happened before or haven’t happened since.

“We’ve carried out a really thorough, painstaking and impartial investigation into what happened.

“That has concluded today with the outcome I have described.”

Safiah Ngah who spoke for the Covid-19 Bereaved Families for Justice group said, “The nearly half a million pounds this investigation has cost could have been spent on support services for the bereaved.

“Instead it was spent investigating our own government and all because they lied and failed to acknowledge they had broken the law.

“Conservative MPs promised they would make their mind up about the Prime Minister when the Sue Gray report is released.

“There is no reason for that report to be delayed any longer.

“Every day they do not act they allow a man who gaslit us and lied to the faces of the bereaved when he claimed he did ‘everything possible’ to save our loved ones remain the highest office in the land.”
