Boris Johnson accused of cover-up after aide revealed to have stepped in on Afghanistan animal rescue

THE PM was accused of a cover-up last night after a letter revealed his aide intervened on the animal rescue from Afghanistan.

Boris Johnson had denied he or wife Carrie had stepped in to give ex-Marine Pen Farthing’s flight of dogs and cats the go-ahead from Kabul.

But the PM’s then aide Trudy Harrison wrote to Mr Farthing saying Government officials gave his staff permission to board, adding: “I wish you well.”

Afghans who risked their lives working with Britain were left trapped.

Labour MP Chris Bryant fumed: “The Prime Minister’s fingers are all over this.”

But No10 said Ms Harrison acted without the PM’s knowledge.
