Scottish Conservative leader Douglas Ross has demanded the resignation of Boris Johnson over the Downing Street drinks party row.

Mr Ross claimed the prime minister’s position was “no longer tenable” and revealed he had spoken to Mr Johnson on Wednesday afternoon to “set out my reasons and I explained to him my position”.

The Scottish Tory leader would not reveal how Mr Johnson responded.

The pair spoke following the prime minister’s admission that he attended a Number 10 drinks event at the height of the UK’s first national lockdown in May 2020.

Another senior Tory MP, Sir Roger Gale, told Sky News that Mr Johnson had left himself in “an impossible position” and was facing an “exit route”.
