Grieving families have slammed Boris Johnson after finding out he made a private visit to the National Covid Memorial Wall by ignoring their invitation to meet grieving families there in person.

The Prime Minister was spotted during the private solo tour of the Memorial Wall on Tuesday evening.

It comes a week after activists issued a public invitation to him to meet the grieving families behind the moving tribute on the Thames Embankment opposite the Houses of Parliament.

Matt Fowler, co-founder of Covid-19 Bereaved Families for Justice, who drew the first of more than 150,000 hearts on the vast memorial wall, said it was deeply hurtful to learn that the Prime Minister had made the visit under cover of darkness in order to dodge families.

He added: Boris Johnson visited the National Covid Memorial Wall late last night.

For weeks we asked him to come to the wall and meet bereaved families. He even refused to acknowledge our request.

Then, the day after his revelation, he said he let the bodies pile up, he was making a late night visit under the cover of darkness, just so he could avoid encountering bereaved families.

It is a cynical and insincere gesture that is deeply hurtful.

Our invitation for him to walk the wall with the families of these lost loved ones is still open, and we await a response.

Activists, who are also calling for an urgent public inquiry into the government’s handling of the pandemic, have called on politicians to walk the wall since it was completed earlier this month.

The living memorial features a hand painted heart for every Briton with Covid-19 inscribed on their death certificate.

It stretches for half a mile along the Thames, taking almost ten minutes to walk from end to end.

Families in the group have been angered after reports claimed Boris Johnson said he would rather let bodies pile up in the thousands rather than trigger a third lockdown.

They called for an immediate apology for the cruel and irresponsible comment.

The prime minister denied making the comment.
