The Mirror reported today that Dominic Cummings was spotted near his parents house in Durham – some 250 miles away from his London home.
Police confirmed they had visited an individual at an address in the city who they had learned had travelled to Durham from London during the lockdown.
They spoke to the family and reminded them that travelling to stay with relatives was in breach of the rules.
The Mirror further reported:
“Several days later on April 5, a neighbour of Mr Cummings’ parents, Robert and Morag, claims they spotted him outside the property while passing for their daily exercise.
They heard Abba’s Dancing Queen blasting out loudly and peered over the hedge where they saw him, wearing a scarf and thick coat, with a small boy running around.
The neighbour, who did not want to give their name, said: “I got the shock of my life, as I looked over to the gates and saw him.
“There was a child, presumably his little boy, running around in front. I recognised Dominic Cummings, he’s a very distinctive figure.”
They added: “I was really annoyed. I thought it’s okay for you to drive all the way up to Durham and escape from London.
“I sympathise with him wanting to do that but other people are not allowed to do that. It’s one rule for Dominic Cummings and one rule for the rest of us.”
Breaching the rules at the time could be fined £60 for the first offence, cut to £30 if paid promptly. It would be doubled on each further offence up to a maximum of £960.”
