UK PM had birthday party at No. 10 during lockdown - report

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson held a birthday party at his official residence, 10 Downing Street, during the lockdown in the United Kingdom imposed in 2020 to curb the spread of COVID-19, ITV News reported on Monday.

The outlet alleged the event took place on June 19, 2020, in the presence of up to 30 guests. "This is totally untrue. In line with the rules at the time the prime minister hosted a small number of family members outside that evening," No. 10 insisted in its response to the rumors.

The report comes amid the controversy that arose following the allegations of several parties that took place at Johnson's residence during the lockdown. No. 10 apologized for two of such occurrences. Johnson also expressed similar feelings and later denied he will resign over the issue.
