Partygate: Sue Gray did not initiate meeting with PM, says spokesperson.

Pressure is growing on Number 10 to explain a meeting between Sue Gray and Boris Johnson as it emerged an unnamed Downing Street official may have suggested the pair get together.

Opposition MPs have demanded more details about the event, which took place some weeks ago and was made public last night by Sky News.

Sources initially claimed that Ms Gray initiated the meeting - but today a spokesman for the Gray inquiry intervened to deny this, leading to a clarification by Number 10.
