Former health secretary Matt Hancock said breaking of social distancing guidance, which led to his resignation, was “a failure of leadership”.

The West Suffolk MP stood down after pictures were published showing him in an embrace with a colleague.

Speaking to the BBC at a mass vaccination event at Newmarket Racecourse, he said he was “sorry for all the people I let down”.

He added: “People have been forgiving which I’m grateful for.”
