Dominic Cummings might have committed a “minor breach” of lockdown rules when he made a journey to Barnard Castle, Durham Police’s investigation has concluded.
Mr Cummings, Boris Johnson’s chief aide, made a 260-mile trip to stay close to his parents in Durham when he was ill with coronavirus symptoms during lockdown.
Durham Police “does not consider” an offence was committed by making the journey but said said that in making the 52-mile round journey to Barnard Castle, there “might have been a minor breach” of coronavirus regulations that “would have warranted police intervention”.
