He stated he did not stop the car on the way to Durham and went there to guarantee there would be childcare for their four-year-old.

When they wanted to return back to London, he stated that as he had actually been ill he wanted to go on a short drive to check whether he might drive securely.

They drove to the outskirts of Barnard Castle, picked up his boy to go to the toilet and then went on to London.

He stated that he did not go back to Durham after April 13 as some reports had declared, and that data from his phone would show this.

While in Durham he stated he isolated in a separate home to his parents and only saw them from a distance.

Mr Cummings said ‘I do not regret what I did’ but included that ‘affordable individuals may well disagree’.

He stated ‘I have actually not offered to resign’, adding: ‘I have actually ruled out it.’
