A new series of bombshell photos have been released tonight showing Boris Johnson raising a glass of bubbly at a No10 party – which he denied ever taking place.

The four shocking photos, published by ITV News, show the PM cheerily gathered around a table full of party food and bottles of booze with a group of aides.

Sources have reportedly told both ITV and the Mirror the pictures are from a leaving do for communications chief Lee Cain on 13 November 2020.

This was a time when social gatherings were banned indoors for people not from the same household.

The exposing snaps come five months after Boris Johnson denied a party took place in Downing Street on 13 November 2020.

He was asked by Labour MP Catherine West: "Will the Prime Minister tell the House whether there was a party in Downing Street on the 13th of November?"

Mr Johnson replied: "No. But I’m sure that, whatever happened, the guidance was followed and the rules were followed at all times."

Angela Rayner, Labour deputy leader, said: “While the British public were making huge sacrifices, Boris Johnson was breaking the law.

“Boris Johnson said repeatedly that he knew nothing about law-breaking – there’s no doubt now, he lied. Boris Johnson made the rules, and then broke them.

“The Prime Minister has demeaned his office. The British people deserve better. While Labour has a plan for tackling the cost-of-living crisis, Tory MPs are too busy defending the indefensible actions of Boris Johnson.”

The snaps show eight people, as well as the photographer, but it is believed others were attending out of shot.

Just eight days prior to the alleged date, England had been plunged back into a tight lockdown due to heavily increasing cases of Covid-19.

The exposing pictures come just hours after former top aide Dominic Cummings warned Boris Johnson faces the publication of Partygate photos "within the next 24-48 hours".
