The UK Prime Minister's top aide is facing calls to resign after he travelled from London to his parents' home in Durham
Political campaign group Led by Donkeys drove by Dominic Cumming's home today displaying a video message in protest against his actions.
The group blasted Boris Johnson's stay at home message, among other stories, in outrage following the UK Prime Minister's top aide deciding to travel 260 miles away from his London home to his parents home in Durham during lockdown.
Mr Johnson's message echoed across the street which reads: "You must stay at home, you should not be visiting family members who do not live in your home."

The video display on Sunday follows Led by Donkeys placing a billboard on Westminster Bridge Road on Friday.
Posting a photo of the billboard, it reads: "Stay alert, Government incompetence costs lives.
"When the PMs top adviser is criss-crossing the country with coronavirus, its definitely time to stay alert."

Cummings has insisted"I behaved reasonably and legally" after details of the 260-mile trip emerged.
After emerging from his London home on Saturday, Cummings told reporters:"Who cares about good looks? It's a question of doing the right thing. It's not about what you guys [the media] think."
Boris Johnson has since defended Dominic Cummings' actions, saying he acted with "integrity" and "responsibly", following the instincts of any parent.
At a press briefing the UK Prime Minister said:"I have concluded that in travelling to find the right kind of childcare, at the moment when both he and his wife were about to be incapacitated bycoronavirus and when he had no alternative I think he followed the instincts of every father and every parent. And I do not mark him down for that.
