North West Norfolk MP James Wild.

North West Norfolk MP James Wild has said his constituents “feel let down” after the Prime Minister admitted he attended a Downing Street party during the May 2020 lockdown.

Boris Johnson apologised during a grilling at PMQs on Wednesday.

“My constituents who have sacrificed so much during Covid feel let down and are angry,” said Mr Wild yesterday (Thursday).

“The Prime Minister has rightly apologised personally and has acknowledged he should have acted differently. 

“Now we need to wait for the results of the inquiry with all the facts which I hope will be concluded rapidly.”

Foreign Secretary and South West Norfolk MP, Liz Truss, tweeted her support for Mr Johnson.

She said: “I stand behind the Prime Minister 100 per cent as he takes our country forward.”
