LONDON (AA) – British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has offered "heartfelt apologies" on Wednesday over a party held at Downing Street during the first COVID-19 lockdown in England.

“I want to apologise,” Johnson said in a short statement as a weekly questions session started in the House of Commons.

“I know that millions of people across this country have made extraordinary sacrifices over the last 18 months,” he said.

“I know the anguish that they have been through, unable to mourn their relatives, unable to live their lives as they want or to do the things they love.”

Johnson said: “And I know the rage they feel with me and with the government I lead when they think that in Downing Street itself, the rules are not being properly followed by the people who make the rules.

“And though I cannot anticipate the conclusions of the current inquiry, I have learned enough to know that there were things we simply did not get right.”

​​​​​​​“I offer my heartfelt apologies,” he added.
