Durham police to look into claims Labour leader broke Covid rules after ‘significant new information’
The Labour leader, Keir Starmer, will face a police investigation into allegations he broke lockdown rules by having a bottle of beer and a takeaway meal with staff during campaigning for the 2021 Hartlepool byelection.
Durham police faced mounting calls to investigate and held off until now because of the local elections. The force had previously said there were no grounds to investigate the incident that took place in a Labour constituency office in Durham last April.
