The Prime Minister’s wife admitted to attending a “gathering” in June 2020. She claimed she had acted “in accordance with the rules at the time” but has accepted the ruling this was not the case.
In a statement, Mrs Johnson’s spokesperson said: “Mrs Johnson has paid a fixed penalty notice relating to a gathering on the afternoon of June 19, 2020.
“Whilst she believed that she was acting in accordance with the rules at the time, Mrs Johnson accepts the Met Police’s findings and apologises unreservedly.”
Both the Prime Minister and the Chancellor have also been issued with fines by the Met.
