UK PM Boris Johnson has dismissed calls to resign after Sue Gray's report found that Downing Street staff partied while the rest of the nation was in lockdown with their bosses' approval.
Ms Gray, a senior civil servant, said many events "should not have been allowed" and the PM and his officials "must bear responsibility for this culture".

Her report highlights excessive drinking, with staff being sick, and abuse of cleaning and security staff.

Boris Johnson told MPs he took "full responsibility for everything that took place on my watch", had been "humbled by the whole experience" and had learned lessons.
