'Hero' Glasgow nurse died from Covid on same day as alleged Downing Street Christmas do

A nurse described as a 'hero' and 'incredibly compassionate' died from covid on the same day as an alleged party took place in Downing Street - breaking lockdown rules.

Ana Lisa had worked as a staff nurse at Stobhill Hospital but moved to the Glasgow Royal Infirmary to help out with the "staffing crisis" during the pandemic, but died on December 15 2020.

She was among nearly 50 people to die over the dates of alleged lockdown breaking parties enjoyed by UK Government officials.

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde described Ana as "an incredibly compassionate nurse" as health chiefs paid tributes to the "hero" employee.

On the same day, the Prime Minister appeared on contestants' screens at a Downing Street quiz but later insisted he broke no rules.

An image published by a national newspaper showed Mr Johnson flanked by colleagues - one draped in tinsel and another wearing a Santa hat in No 10.

The day after Ana Lisa's death, senior civil servants at the Department for Transport allegedly planned a bash from Transport Secretary Grant Shapps' office.

The DfT has apologised after claims of "boozing and dancing" at the party.

Figures show 47 people in the Glasgow region lost their lives to the virus on the same dates UK Government officials are accused of holding social gatherings.

A string of reported events - including two on the eve of the Duke of Edinburgh's funeral - allegedly took place when strict regulations were set upon the country.

According to reports, there were at least 15 gatherings held during a spell where officials from Downing Street, Whitehall and Tory HQ are accused of breaking lockdown laws, from May 15, 2020 to April 18, 2021.
