The editors at the Metro have had some fun with the news that people are being urged to get a Covid booster in one arm and a flu jab in the other. The paper dubs it a “call two arms”. That’s below a picture of the Queen, who has cancelled a trip to Northern Ireland after being given medical advice to rest. That, the paper says, is “E II R’n’R”.
Dominic Cummings, Boris Johnson’s former chief aide, has insisted the Prime Minister lied about his knowledge of party in the garden of No 10 and has said he and other witnesses will swear “under oath”, the paper says.
Metro also leads with Boris Johnson facing a barrage of calls to resign after finally admitting he attended a drinks event during lockdown in Downing Street’s garden – claiming he thought it was a work event.
