Defiant Dominic Cummings today claimed he didn't break government lockdown rules by travelling to see his family in the north east.
The PM’s chief adviser travelled more than 260 miles from his London home to stay with his parents in Durham so his sister could look after his children while he had coronavirus symptoms.
After being backed by No10 this morning, Mr Cummings told reporters outside his home in London: "I behaved reasonably and legally."
When asked by reporters if his trip to Durham during lockdown 'looked good', he added: “Who cares about good looks. It’s a question of doing the right thing. It’s not about what you guys think.”
