Boris Johnson is holding a press conference to discuss the contents of a report on parties in Downing Street during COVID lockdowns.

The 37-page document, produced by senior civil servant Sue Gray, was published on Wednesday morning, laying bare the details of booze-fuelled gatherings in No 10 and Whitehall.

At one event, a staff member threw up after drinking "excessive amounts" of alcohol, and two others were involved in a "minor altercation".

Gray laid the blame for the culture of rule-breaking at the feet of "senior leadership" in Boris Johnson's government and team.
