UK minister quits over Cummings lockdown trip

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's government was hit by its first resignation over the controversy surrounding top aide Dominic Cummings' cross-country trip during the virus lockdown, SIA reports.

Undermining attempts by ministers to try and move on from the crisis which has dominated British politics for days, Douglas Ross, a minister for Scotland, quit in protest.

The resignation will pile more pressure on Cummings, who held an extraordinary press conference Monday to justify driving his wife and young son on a 425-kilometre trip from London to Durham in the northeast of England during the height of the coronavirus crisis.
