UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he took “full responsibility” for breaches of COVID-19 restrictions after the publication of a final report into gatherings held at Downing Street in 2020.
In the report, the author, Sue Gray, said many of the events “should not have been allowed to happen” and that senior leadership at Downing Street “must bear responsibility for this culture.”
Speaking in Parliament, Johnson apologized, and said, “I take full responsibility for everything that took place on my watch.”
Johnson can be seen in several photos of gatherings at Downing Street published in the Gray report.
