Partygate: what do people in Manchester think about Boris Johnson breaking lockdown rules?

Should politicians face more consequences after they broke lockdown rules? We asked people in Manchester today.

MPs will hold a debate on Thursday into whether Prime Minister Boris Johnson misled parliament over lockdown parties.

Mr Johnson has been accused of lying after the Metropolitan Police issued more than 50 fixed penalty notices over parties in Whitehall and Downing Street during Covid restrictions, including £50 fines for the Prime Minister, his wife Carrie and Chancellor Rishi Sunak.
