Keir Starmer was left squirming today after he was asked to tell the truth about ‘Beergate’ as a former police chief suggested the gathering should be investigated.

The Labour leader complained there was too much focus on Tory ‘mudslinging’ rather than the cost-of-living as he was grilled on claims he shared £200 worth of curry with up to 30 aides.
Meanwhile, Sir Peter Fahy, ex-chief constable of Greater Manchester, said Durham Police ‘should probably just look at the new information and reconsider their situation’.
Sir Keir could not hide his irritation after the incident was repeatedly raised on his final day of campaigning ahead of crunch local elections tomorrow.
In an interview with Susanna Reid on GMB, the Labour leader repeatedly insisted the group had been at work in Durham last year.
But Sir Keir looked distinctly uncomfortable as he failed to deny that there had been dozens of people present.
