"The prime minister has said he believes Mr. Cummings behaved reasonably and legally given all the circumstances and he regards this issue as closed", a Downing Street spokesperson said.

Mr Cummings, the campaigner who helped deliver the 2016 Brexit referendum win and Mr Johnson's 2019 election landslide, has been fighting for his job after revelations about a long road trip at the height of lockdown provoked outrage across Britain.

Dominic Cummings may have committed "a minor breach" of lockdown rules when he drove to Barnard Castle but will face no further action, Durham police have said.

Speaking at the daily Downing Street COVID-19 briefing, he said it was important they did not "get dragged into what I think most people recognise is fundamentally a political argument".

Steve White, the Acting Durham Police, Crime and Victims' Commissioner, said: "I am grateful to the Chief Constable for the work that the constabulary has conducted in extremely hard circumstances and the comprehensive and proportionate consideration of the facts".

Mr Johnson came under questioning before the Commons Liaison Committee of senior MPs, on Wednesday, Johnson said he was "deeply sorry for all the hurt and pain and anxiety that people have been going through throughout this period", but insisted it was now time to "move on".

Cllr Mark Clark, district member for Furzedown and Hardley, said: "People right across Hythe and Dibden have made incredible sacrifices to stop the coronavirus".

UP: Monkeys run away with Covid test samples of patients in Meerut
And with people staying indoors due to the Covid-19 lockdown, the monkeys apparently decided that they are now in charge. The incident took place three days ago in west Uttar Pradesh's Meerut Medical College and Hospital.

At Thursday's daily briefing, the prime minister said he would not allow scientific advisor Sir Patrick Vallance, and chief medical officer Professor Chris Whitty to answer questions on the row.

"Even if the Prime Minister keeps his blinkers on, Dr Julian Lewis can not be oblivious to how angry people are with this scandal despite Mr Cummings' mea culpa moment [on Monday]".

"Instead it's been wasted because the Prime Minister has been frankly too weak to draw a line under this and take the necessary action".

"I am sure that the communities across the force area will continue to do their very best in preventing the spread of this disease and will continue to support the force as it works hard to decipher and provide education to the public as it polices the changing advice, regulations and legislation".

In the meeting, Plaid Cymru Westminster Leader Liz Saville Roberts MP said that the Prime Minister's "confusing" stance on travel was risking public health.

"This goes back to the ambiguity that there was between the legislation which was never debated in parliament and the advice that was given by the government which was giving the impression we would be much more dogmatic".

"It is unfortunate that there appears to still be a tendency to act in a manner that might be seen by some as attempting to control the message".
