Boris Johnson was grilled by MPs while self-isolating at Chequers for this week's Prime Minister's Questions. Watch it again here.

The prime minister went head-to-head with Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer in their final Commons clash before Parliament rises for the summer recess.

It came just days after Mr Johnson and Chancellor Rishi Sunak performed a swift U-turn on their plans not to self-isolate after being 'pinged' as a close contact of someone with coronavirus.

The pair were forced into quarantining following a furious backlash by the public, politicians and health experts.

Elsewhere, safeguarding minister Victoria Atkins told LBC this morning that people should self-isolate when 'pinged' even if they are getting married the following day.
