UK Govt. to probe leak of footage
After first rejecting calls for Hancock to be fired or to resign after pictures were published on Friday of him embracing a woman he had appointed to a taxpayer-funded role, Johnson accepted the minister’s decision to step down on Saturday.
A report by the BBC on Sunday that sensitive Defence Ministry documents had been found by a member of the public at a bus stop this week did little to dispel a sense of chaos at the heart of Government. The ministry said it was investigating the incident.
Asked whether the Health Ministry was investigating how the images of Hancock had been taken in his Government office and then leaked, Northern Ireland Minister Brandon Lewis told Sky News: “It is a matter I know the department of health will be looking into to understand exactly how that recording … got out of the system.”
