UK PM Boris Johnson apologized for attending a garden party during Britain’s first Covid lockdown. Johnson admitted he attended the party at 10 Downing Street in May 2020 when Covid rules limited social gatherings. Johnson said he regarded the boozy get-together in May 2020 as a work event for Downing Street staff.

The U.K. Prime Minister had stonewalled the issue since an email was leaked late Monday in which a senior aide invited more than 100 colleagues to the 2020 event encouraging them to "bring your own booze".
