UK Labour leader, Keir Starmer, has called for Boris Johnson to resign during a rowdy Prime Minister's Questions where Mr Johnson faced repeated jeers from MPs.

He told the Commons he understands the "rage" people feel when the staff in No 10 do not follow the rules they have set. He claimed he "believed implicitly" that the BYOB party on May 20, 2020 was a work event.

However, he admitted he should have recognised it was not appropriate and that he should have sent those gathered back inside. He claimed the garden at No 10 was seen as an extension of the office.

Mr Johnson was booed and heckled when he claimed he could not predict the conclusions of the current inquiry into the parties.

However, he also offered his "heartfelt apologies" and said he would make another statement after Sue Gray's inquiry concluded.

The National Wales:

Keir Starmer called the apology "pretty worthless" and called for him to resign. He listed the resignations of former UK health secretary Matt Hancock, and former press secretary Allegra Stratton, who both resigned after their rule-breaking came to light. Keir Starmer then called upon Johnson to resign, asking why he believes the rules don't apply to him.

"Everyone can see what happened," Sir Keir said.

"The Prime Minister pretended he had been assured there had been no parties. How this fits with his defence now I don't know."

Shouts of "selfish" and "embarrassing" come from the backbenchers, as the Speaker tries to call for order.

The National Wales:

The UK Labour leader said Johnson had broken the ministerial code. He said: "The only question is: will the British public kick him out, will his party kick him out, or will he do the decent thing and resign?"

Intense laughter filled the House and Keir Starmer put his hand over his face as Boris Johnson hit out at the Labour leader's conduct.

Plaid Cymru's leader in Westminster tweeted that Mr Johnson displayed the "tears of a clown".

Rhondda MP Chris Bryant asked Boris Johnson how stupid he thinks the British people are.

The Chair of the Standards Committee said the Prime Minister is making fools of every MP who defends him.

The National Wales:

He said it would be despicable if a junior staffer lost their job in the search for a scapegoat for Mr Johnson's actions, while the Prime Minister remains in post.

Mr Johnson repeated the line that people should wait for the inquiry into the lockdown parties to conclude.
