SIR Keir Starmer WILL be investigated by police over his ‘beergate’ lockdown-breaking bash.

Cops initially refused to investigate the Labour leader for breaking Covid lockdown rules when he boozed and scoffed a takeaway curry with colleagues in April 2021.

Cops previously reviewed the video but took no further action despite the bash occurring when most indoor gatherings were banned.

But in a major U-turn today, it was revealed Durham Constabulary is ready to probe the claims fully, The Telegraph reports.

Starmer was seen clutching a bottle of San Miguel at the bash with MPS and aides last spring, when coronavirus restrictions meant no more than six people could dine together inside.

HOAR later revealed £200-worth of curry had been ordered for up to 30 people.

Insisting he hadn’t broken any rules, Starmer told Good Morning Britain presenter Susanna Reid: “People went through the kitchen, got a plate, had something to eat along with their work.”

But the rules for workplaces serving food at the time specifically stated: “There should not be any sharing of food and drink by staff who do not share a household.”

The revelation will come as a blow for Starmer, who is today celebrating strengthening Labour’s grip on London.

The Party gained Wandsworth and Westminster in yesterday’s council elections.
