The deadline for the government to hand over Boris Johnson’s WhatsApp messages has been delayed by the COVID inquiry.

The inquiry had ordered the government to hand over the messages – alongside diary entries and notes – by 4pm on Tuesday 30 May.

The deadline has now set been 4pm on Thursday 1 June. The Cabinet Office asked for an extension to 5 June as they do not have access to Mr Johnson’s messages or notebooks.
