It follows accusations, which he denies, that he breached lockdown rules by travelling several hundred kilometres to see his parents when he and his wife had coronavirus symptoms. Senior government ministers are defending Mr Cummings who was a central figure in both securing Brexit and Mr Johnson's victory at the last election. But today there are further alleged breaches of the rules and several normally loyal Conservative MPs are calling for his resignation. London correspondent Vincent McAviney speaks to Corin Dann.
