More than 50 fines have been awarded to people who broke lockdown rules to attend attend boozy Partgate events in Downing Street, police revealed today.

Scotland Yard said it had referred a further 30 on top of the 20 it had already revealed to the ACRO Criminal Records Office ‘for breaches of Covid-19 regulations’ in 2020 and 2021. 

The Metropolitan Police did not disclose if Boris Johnson was among those to be sanctioned. Downing Street has yet to comment.

The Prime Minister has yet to publicly acknowledge that the fines being issued by the police are evidence of law-breaking by senior figures in his Government and Whitehall. 

The Metropolitan Police did not disclose if Prime Minister Boris Johnson (pictured in Kyiv at the weekend) was among those to be sanctioned.

Scotland Yard said it had referred a half-century of cases to the ACRO Criminal Records Office 'for breaches of Covid-19 regulations' in 2020 and 2021.

Scotland Yard said it had referred a half-century of cases to the ACRO Criminal Records Office ‘for breaches of Covid-19 regulations’ in 2020 and 2021.

In a statement, the Metropolitan Police said: ‘The investigation into allegations of breaches of Covid-19 regulations in Whitehall and Downing Street continues to progress.

‘As of Tuesday, 12 April 2022, we have made over 50 referrals for fixed penalty notices (FPN) to the ACRO Criminal Records Office for breaches of Covid-19 regulations who, following the referral, issue the FPNs to the individual.

‘We are making every effort to progress this investigation at speed, this includes continuing to assess significant amounts of investigative material from which further referrals may be made to ACRO.’

Mr Johnson has continually stonewalled over whether the issuing of the FPNs means the law was broken by people within his administration, saying he wants to wait until the Operation Hillman probe is completed before commenting.

But his own ministers have been less circumspect in recent weeks, with Cabinet members among those who have publicly accepted there was illegality in No10.
