Meanwhile, Boris Johnson’s adviser remains under pressure from both sides of the political spectrum.
Labour Party leader Keir Starmer said on Sunday he would have sacked Mr Cummings if he were in the same position.
Meanwhile, dozens of Tory MPs have now defied their party leader in criticising Mr Cummings, many of which calling for him to be sacked or resign.
Yesterday, Durham Police issued a statement in which they said “there might have been a minor breach of the regulations that would have warranted police intervention. Durham Constabulary view this as minor because there was no apparent breach of social distancing.”
They added later in the statement that “had a Durham Constabulary police officer stopped Mr Cummings driving to or from Barnard Castle, the officer would have spoken to him, and, having established the facts, likely advised Mr Cummings to return to the address in Durham, providing advice on the dangers of travelling during the pandemic crisis”.
