Pollsters YouGov carried out a snap poll after the report was published and found 59% of Brits think Mr Johnson should quit as Prime Minister. It includes around a quarter (27%) of 2019 Conservative voters. Three in ten (30%) Britons say that the PM should remain in his role, rising to almost two-thirds (63%) of 2019 Conservative voters. The poll asked 2,748 adults.

Three-quarters (74%) say that he did, with around one in eight (13%) saying that he did not. Among 2019 Conservative voters, half (51%) think that Johnson knowingly lied.
