Johnson’s wife to be fined over lockdown breach, opposition calls for PM’s resignation

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s wife Carrie has been notified by police she will be fined over COVID-19 lockdown breaches, her spokesperson said on Tuesday (April 12).

The prime minister’s spokesperson earlier said both Johnson and his finance minister Rishi Sunak had also been told they would be fined.

“Mrs Johnson can confirm she has been notified that she will receive a fixed penalty notice (FPN). She has not yet received any further details about the nature of the FPN,” Carrie’s spokesperson said in a statement.

Keir Starmer, leader of the main opposition Labour Party and Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon both took to social media to call for Johnson and Sunak to resign.

”Boris Johnson and Rishi Sunak have broken the law and repeatedly lied to the British public. They must both resign,” Starmer said in a tweet.
