This is the moment in 2021 when James O'Brien was moved by the call of a father who lost his daughter amid the Covid crisis.

LBC will be with you across the festive period with a range of special shows and guests - you can listen live on Global Player.

Grieving father John, who lost his daughter Susan in March 2020, called into James' show and gave his response to Dominic Cummings' appearance in front of a select committee in May.

He told James that his daughter is dead "mainly because of the incompetence of [Boris] Johnson and his refusal to accept the serious nature of this pandemic".

Speaking of Dominic Cummings' select committee appearance, he said: "As far as I was concerned, he was telling the truth as he understood it and his truth just by coincidence happens to be my truth, because I've firmly believed from the word go that Johnson never took it seriously."

Thank you for listening to LBC through the year. Have a great Christmas and a Happy New Year.
