COVID-19 bereaved families group hopes PM will 'take us seriously' at meeting

The co-founder of a coronavirus bereaved families group has said he hopes Boris Johnson will "at long last... take us seriously" when he meets them at Number 10 today.

Matt Fowler said it is vital the prime minister understand the need to start a public inquiry as soon as possible.

Mr Johnson will meet members of the Covid-19 Bereaved Families for Justice group today - more than a year after promising to meet people whose loved ones had died.

They will share how their family members caught the disease and died, and repeat calls for a public inquiry to get priority.

The group plans to raise issues with the PM such as the disproportionate effect of COVID on some ethnic groups, transmission of the disease on public transport and in the workplace, the impact of late lockdowns, and failures to learn from the first wave.

Boris Johnson previously said the inquiry would start in spring 2022.
