UK coronavirus live: Matt Hancock leads daily briefing as Tory revolt over Cummings grows

However, in determining what should happen now, technical compliance cannot be the only consideration.

Our continued success in combating the virus may well rely on more of that and Mr Cummings’ actions and his justification of them will, in my judgment, make it less likely that others will continue to interpret those exceptional circumstances clauses restrictively.

This is more important than the position of any individual in Downing Street and therefore, fairly or unfairly, I have concluded that it would be better for Mr Cummings to leave his position at Downing Street.
