    Police have not been in touch over Durham Covid beer

    Sir Keir Starmer has said the police have not contacted him again about accusations he broke lockdown rules by drinking a beer in an MP's office.

    The Labour leader was pictured with a bottle through a window in Durham on 30 April 2021, but was cleared by the local force of breaking any laws.

    However, Tory MPs have called for the event to be reinvestigated.

    Sir Keir declined to answer on Tuesday's BBC Radio 4 Today programme if he had spoken to police again.

    But asked by reporters on Wednesday, he said: "No, I have not had contact from Durham Police, and I think people are just about fed up with the mudslinging going on."

    He accused the Conservatives of focusing on the event as they had "no answer to the central question, which is the cost of living crisis".

    The row comes after Prime Minister Boris Johnson, his wife Carrie, and Chancellor Rishi Sunak were fined by the Metropolitan Police for attending a birthday party for the PM in Downing Street as part of an investigation into 12 gatherings across government buildings during the pandemic.

    Scotland Yard have said at least 50 fines have been issued as a result of their inquiry, but that they will not be announcing any further fixed penalty notices in the run-up to the local election.

    Labour's shadow chancellor Rachel Reeves told BBC Breakfast there was "a world of difference" between the two incidents, saying Sir Keir had "no case to answer".

    A Durham Police spokesman said: "We have received a number of recent communications on this subject, which we are considering and will respond in due course."
