The prime minister will appear before the Commons Liaison Committee for 90 minutes, during which he will be asked about Dominic Cummings's controversial lockdown trip to County Durham.

More than 35 Tory MPs have called for Mr Cummings to resign or be fired after his 260-mile journey came to light

The Conservative MP for Congleton Fiona Bruce released a statement last night saying her constituents are "entitled to feel badly let down" by the actions of Mr Cummings but didn't say he should go.

But Birmingham Northfield Conservative MP Gary Sambrook questioned whether the public care about the issue as much as the media.

"I've had emails which constitute less than half a percent of my total constituents. Yes the vast majority of those emails are against what Mr Cummings did but there's no way of really assessing public mood," he said.

Congleton: Conservative hold

Fiona Bruce, Tory MP for Congleton since 2010, has won re-election with an increased majority.

The Conservative MP beat Labour's Jo Dale by 18,561 votes, 5,942 more votes than the majority at the 2017 election.

Paul Duffy of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Green Party's Richard McCarthy came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 2.6 percentage points since the last general election.

More than 57,000 people, 70.7% of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

Two of the five candidates, Mr McCarthy and Jane Smith (Animal Welfare Party), lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.
