Former British prime minister Boris Johnson’s pandemic-era chief adviser Dominic Cummings has said he will give evidence to the UK Covid-19 Inquiry later this month.

Mr Cummings used his latest Substack post to reveal he had been going through his statement with inquiry lawyers, describing the process as “painful”.
