'If we don't fire the Health Secretary we are going to kill people': Cummings accuses 'serial liar' Hancock of 'criminal, disgraceful behaviour' and using Whitty and Vallance as 'human shields'

Dominic Cummings accused Matt Hancock of 'criminal, disgraceful behaviour' during the early days of the Covid pandemic today as he launched an astonishing broadside at the Health Secretary.

During a no-holds-barred attack on the senior Cabinet Minister he accused him of being a serial liar whose behaviour directly hindered the Government's ability to tackle the pandemic last year.

In a rollercoaster appearance in front of MPs today Mr Cummings outlined a series of failings by Mr Hancock and the Department of Health and Social Care and claimed that the Secretary of State should have been fired 'for at least 15, 20 things, including lying to everybody'.

The former No10 chief adviser also alleged that the then Cabinet Secretary Lord Mark Sedwill told the Prime Minister he had lost confidence in Mr Hancock's honesty, and urged his sacking. Today the Prime Minister denied being told this by the Cabinet Secretary when grilled by Keir Starmer at PMQs.
