LONDON - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Tuesday welcomed a Metropolitan Police investigation into alleged lockdown parties at his official Downing Street residence, and said it would help to draw a line under the issue.

An internal investigation is being carried out by a senior civil servant which has shared findings with the police, "so I welcome the Met's decision to conduct it's own investigation because I believe this will help to give the public the clarity it needs and help to draw a line under matters," he told parliament.
