A West Lothian man who had to watch through a care home window as his dad deteriorated says Boris Johnson needs to “do the decent thing” and resign over this week’s revelations of a BYOB party at Downing Street during lockdown.In the last months of his life, Tommy Davidson’s dad Lex could not stand, talk or eat very well and for months the former councillor’s family could not visit him because of the risk of covid.Tommy said he is furious to learn that during those dark days when Lex’s family couldn’t be with him, garden parties and gatherings were being held at Downing Street.The Prime Minister has apologised for attending a drinks party in the Downing Street garden in May 2020.The gathering is understood to have been attended by around 40 people and Mr Johnson said he believed it was a work event.Tommy said: “To learn that the UK Government had parties during 2020, is truly sickening.“Those who attended a party with PM Boris Johnston during covid should be ashamed, and Mr Johnston should do the decent thing and resign.”Lex passed away in November last year and Tommy said when his family were allowed to see him they had to keep their distance and wear a mask.There was no holding hands, kisses, cuddles or privacy - “just a wave goodbye.”He told The Courier: “Like thousands of people, we had to stand at a window and wave and try and have a conversation.

Watching my mother was painful and his grandchildren were not able to visit.“We all wanted to hug and kiss him or even just hold his hand and be with him, but that wasn’t allowed.

My dad’s freedom was taken and there was nothing we could do.“I could look into my dad’s eyes and see he was scared, but he wasn’t allowed visitors when the care home was in lockdown.“He may have

Woman desperately clings to mossy waterfall then plunges 80ft in front of boyfriend
Covid suffered potentially life-ending injuries after falling down the side of a waterfall.Cara Sutton was out in the Coed-y-Brenin forest, Snowdonia National Park, getting some fresh air after her Coronavirus battle.She was alongside her boyfriend James when the pair took a break by a bridge.They got off their bikes and went for a walk to the side of a waterfall.But the 26-year-old slipped and fell down a steep incline – the only thing she remembers is attempting to pull herself up on some moss, the Liverpool Echo reports.The pharmacist said: “My boyfriend James and I had already planned a trip to Wales in the van he’d done up and we’d got a few different hotels booked and were going to end up by the beach in Barmouth.“The day the accident happened was only my second one out of isolation.“We were mountain biking and had stopped near a bridge to stretch our legs and decided to walk up the side of the waterfall nearby.“It was only a short walk but it was a steep incline and I slipped on one of the rocks. It sounds strange but I hadn’t actually got a proper concept of how high up I was, so at first I wasn’t too scared.“But James had a better vantage point and could see what trouble I was in.“He was desperately trying to reach me and I remember clinging on to some moss and trying to pull myself up - It broke off and I just had this feeling of being dragged backwards.“I didn’t even scream as I fell and I can’t remember hitting the ground.

Francis Ngannou is ice cool outside the octagon - but UFC 270 has him more than fired up
UFC 270.Having said that, there is one name that ignites visible fury behind his eyes - and it isn't that of upcoming opponent, and interim heavyweight champion, Ciryl Gane.Born in Batie, Cameroon back in September of 1985, Ngannou grew up with his aunt after the divorce of his parents and began working in a sand quarry at the tender age of 10.Refusing the advances of gangs and choosing wisely to pursue boxing, it wasn't until after his 26th birthday that he travelled to France in a bid to make his passion a career.Having been jailed in Spain for illegally crossing the border, Ngannou was later introduced to Fernand Lopez by a mutual friend after living homeless on the streets of the French capital.With Mike Tyson as he idol, Ngannou wanted to train as a boxer, but the influence of Lopez saw him take a path in mixed martial arts that would see him become the most feared heavyweight on the planet.Beginning his career in November of 2013, Ngannou won five of his first six bouts to catch the eye of UFC chiefs, winning by second round knockout against fellow newcomer Luis Henrique in a taster of things to come.Curtis Blaydes, Bojan Mihajlovic, Anthony Hamilton, Andrei Arlovski and Alistair Overeem all subsequently fell at his hand before they could make the distance, with his first attempt at the belt following in 2018.Who will wear the belt after UFC 270? Give us your thoughts in the comments sectionFor only the second time in his career the fight would go the distance - with the same outcome as the first.Stipe Miocic's unanimous victory was followed by a damaging loss against Derrick Lewis which would spell the end of the once fruitful partnership between the heavyweight and his long-term coach Lopez.Having left MMA
