Description

The announcement that the Metropolitan Police will now investigate gatherings in Downing Street during lockdown has added to pressure on the prime minister. It comes just as the government prepares for the publication Sue Gray’s report.

Adam and Laura are joined by the BBC’s home affairs correspondent, Dominic Casciani, to discuss the latest twists in the story and explain what happens next.

Also, after the financial crisis of 2008, the government pumped hundreds of billions of pounds into the economy through quantitative easing, and it’s done something similar during the pandemic. But a new BBC TV documentary says all this extra money has benefitted the rich and led to huge inequality. Former trader Gary Stevenson explains how and why this happened.

Today’s Newscast was made by Alison Gee, with John Murphy, Georgia Coan and Alix Pickles. Emma Crowe was the studio director.
