    Rugby mum's anger at No 10 garden photo



    The mother of a boy whose funeral during lockdown was held with a limit on mourners says she is angered by reports of a Downing Street gathering the next day.


    Since we foresee that choosing an effective SLOTXO method is a very problem for many players.


    Louise Bennett's 14-year-old, Fred, was buried on 14 May 2020 after leukaemia treatment.


    On Sunday, a photo said to be from 15 May showed Boris Johnson, his wife and 17 staff members with wine and cheese.


    The event in the Downing Street garden was a "work meeting," No 10 has said.


    Ms Bennett, from Rugby in Warwickshire, said she was tired of the "constant excuses" by the government.


    An investigation is taking place into a number of events within Downing Street in November and December last year.


    The Guardian, which published the image at the weekend, said the garden gathering took place after a press conference held during the first lockdown.


    At the time, gatherings of more than two people were banned in outdoor public spaces in England, although restrictions did not extend then to private gardens.


    But Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer said it was "a stretch" to call it a work meeting, adding it showed a "contrast" between the prime minister and people unable to attend funerals of loved ones.


    Ms Bennett said: "I don't understand how time and time again the government can say that those rules didn't apply to them - or if they did apply to them they could justify their actions on technicalities and small print really."
