LBC listeners called in in their droves to react to leaked footage of the Prime Minister's aides joking about a Christmas party at No 10 last year during a ban on mixing indoors.
The force added that it was not "our policy to routinely investigate retrospective breaches of Covid-19 regulations".
The footage, in which senior aides laugh about a "cheese and wine" evening, has sparked a furious backlash with Boris Johnson facing questions over whether he has told the truth about the alleged event on December 18 last year.
This was how LBC's listener's reacted.
This furious caller said her 'blood is boiling' and there was nothing the PM could say today to make amends for it.

I listen to @LBC every morning and I’ve never heard Nick Ferrari’s callers so angry at the government. I think this might be the end. Now watch Keir Starmer completely mess this up.— Philip Proudfoot 🟨🟥 (@PhilipProudfoot) December 8, 2021
This caller who had said goodbye to his partner when he was in intensive care with Covid tells LBC the Christmas party is 'exactly what I expect from Boris Johnson...'
The flavour of the callers to @LBC is a bit stronger …— Pat Oddy 🇪🇺🐟🕷 (@rossaverde) December 7, 2021
