BORIS Johnson's father has been caught breaking the coronavirus rules.

Stanley Johnson, who lives in West Somerset, was photographed without a mask in a newsagents in West London on Tuesday.

According to the Mirror, Stanley Johnson said he was "extremely sorry" for flouting the Covid-19 measure.

It comes after the Prime Minister told a press conference this week that the fines for breaching the rules "are now very considerable - and they will be imposed".

Stanley Johnson told the Mirror he "maybe not 100 per cent up to speed" on the rules as he had recently returned from a trip abroad.

He said: "I was maybe not 100 per cent up to speed, but that was my first day back in England after three weeks not in England.

“So they (the rules) may have changed in that time. I’m not really a big shopping man.

“I’m extremely sorry for the slip up and I would urge absolutely everybody to do everything they can to make sure they do follow the rules about masks and social distancing.

“The fact this was my first day back in the UK after three weeks abroad is, I am sure, no excuse for not knowing the rules.”
