A woman who lost her mother to Covid-19 has said claims that Boris Johnson said he was prepared to let "bodies pile high" rather than order another coronavirus lockdown are "disgusting".

Brenda Doherty, whose mum Ruth Burke was one of Northern Ireland's first virus victims, spoke out amid a growing storm over the reported comments - denied by the Prime Minister.
