Boris Johnson: police called to loud altercation at potential PM's home - Guardian
Police were called to the home of Boris Johnson and his partner, Carrie Symonds, in the early hours of Friday morning after neighbours heard a loud altercation involving screaming, shouting and banging.

The argument could be heard outside the property where the potential future prime minister is living with Symonds, a former Conservative party head of press.

A neighbour told the Guardian they heard a woman screaming followed by "slamming and banging". At one point Symonds could be heard telling Johnson to "get off me" and "get out of my flat".

The neighbour said that after becoming concerned they knocked on the door but received no response. "I [was] hoping that someone would answer the door and say `We're okay'. I knocked three times and no one came to the door."

Boris Johnson faces growing pressure to comment on row with partner  - Guardian
The development follows two days of negative headlines that have damaged Johnson's chances of beating the foreign secretary, Jeremy Hunt, in a race to become leader of the Conservative party.

Under close questioning at the first hustings before Tory party members on Saturday, Johnson refused to comment on the argument with Carrie Symonds, a former Conservative party head of press, at their home in the early hours of Friday.

Fox, a supporter of Hunt, said on Sunday it was time for Johnson to openly explain the incident so that the contest can get away from "these distractions" and return to the two candidates' plans as prime minister.
