UK PM candidate Johnson avoids questions about police visit

Vastavam web: Early on Friday, British police were called to Johnson’s home after neighbours heard a loud altercation between him and his girlfriend. Johnson to declined to answer questions about the incident at a hustings event in Birmingham, in central England, saying that party members would rather hear about his plans for Britain than about the incident.

“I don’t think (audience members) want to hear about that kind of thing, unless I’m wrong,” Johnson said when asked about the incident, to applause from the audience.

Police had been called to an address in south London where Johnson is living with his girlfriend, Carrie Symonds. Johnson is currently divorcing his second wife. “The caller was concerned for the welfare of a female neighbour,” the police said in a statement on Friday evening. “Police attended and spoke to all occupants of the address, who were all safe and well.”

“There were no offences or concerns apparent to the officers and there was no cause for police action,” the statement said.
