The report said the senior leadership at Downing Street - both political and official - must “bear responsibility” for the culture of partying during Covid lockdowns.

Ms Gray’s report added that “while there is no excuse for some of the behaviour set out here it is important to acknowledge that those in the most junior positions attended gatherings at which their seniors were present, or indeed organised”.

The report also included pictures of some of the events detailed featuring the Prime Minister.
