Boris Johnson will meet a campaign group representing families bereaved by Covid on Tuesday, after declining to meet them since last year.

The prime minister will host Covid-19 Bereaved Families for Justice for a private reception in Downing Street, alongside senior officials.

He declined to meet them last year – citing a threat of legal action over an official pandemic inquiry.

The government has since said an official probe will begin next spring.

The meeting comes a week before the group attends the Conservative Party annual conference, which begins in Manchester on Sunday.
