LONDON (Reuters) – British police said Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s senior adviser Dominic Cummings did breach the coronavirus lockdown but that it was minor and so they will take no further action, the Telegraph reported.

“Dominic Cummings did break lockdown rules when he made a 50-mile journey to Barnard Castle, an investigation by Durham Police has concluded,” The Telegraph said. The force “said it would not be taking any further action against Mr Cummings.”
