Newbury MP Laura Farris has spoken out about the Downing Street party scandal.

She was asked by BBC Politics what she would have done if she had received the party invitation.

“I would have declined it,” she said. “The rules were unequivocal at that point in time. I don’t think anyone thought you were meant to be having parties.”

The conservative MP said "hand on heart" she would have refused it.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson is under pressure to respond to Parliament.

MPs will question him later today (Wednesday) over a "bring-your-own-booze" party at Downing Street during the first lockdown.
