"You deserve the truth," over Downing Street parties said top Tory Michael Gove today - but he's still backing the Prime Minister.
The Levelling Up minister said he “completely understands” the anger people feel after it was revealed that two parties were held in Downing Street the day before the Duke of Edinburgh's funeral.
However, he said if any action needed to be taken, it should be done quickly, but only after the investigation into the gatherings had concluded.
On a visit to Manchester he was asked for a response to the outpouring of anger from the public and heartbreaking stories from those who'd been diligently sticking to the rules.
