The move could mean Boris Johnson is in an awkward position if he is fined again, as Political Correspondent Libby Weiner reports Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer and his deputy Angela Rayner have both promised to resign if they are found by police to have broken coronavirus laws last year, however the pair insist no rules were broken. "I'm absolutely clear that no laws were broken, they were followed at all times," Sir Keir said in a speech at Labour HQ, but added: "If the police decide to issue me with a Fixed Penalty Notice, I would of course do the right thing and step down." The Labour leader is under investigation by Durham Police over a gathering in the Durham office of Labour MP Mary Foy in April 2021, when most indoor socialising was banned. • Subscribe to ITV News on YouTube: http://bit.ly/2lOHmNj • Get breaking news and more stories at http://www.itv.com/news Follow ITV News on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/itvnews/ Follow ITV News on Twitter: https://twitter.com/itvnews Follow ITV News on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/itvnews/
