A former Conservative London Mayor candidate has apologised for breaking Covid rules by attending a Christmas party last year. 

Shaun Bailey, of Harold Hill, went to a gathering at the Conservative Campaign Headquarters last December when London households were banned from mixing. 

The Mirror released a picture showing him next to 23 people while enjoying drinks and a buffet on Tuesday.

Bailey has since stepped down from his role as chair of the London Assembly’s police and crime committee and issued an apology on Twitter. 

“I want to apologise unreservedly for attending a gathering held by some of my staff in my campaign office last December,” the statement said. 

“I gave a speech to my team to thank them for their efforts, before leaving shortly afterwards. 

“It was a serious error of judgement at a time when Londoners were making immense sacrifices to keep us all safe and I regret it wholeheartedly.”

Responding to the apology, one woman said: “I voted for you as I thought you were genuine and honest.

“I could not attend a funeral of my closest friend. I cancelled Christmas. Hope the party was fun.” 

Members of the London Assembly are calling on the Metropolitan Police to investigate what happened.
