Heartbroken Lousie Bennett told Good Morning Britain that some of Fred Bennett’s uncles and aunties were not allowed to attend the funeral on May 14, 2020 and that none of his friends could mourn Fred’s passing because of COVID-19 rules. A leaked email obtained by ITV revealed that Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Principle Private Secretary Martin Reynolds invited over 100 Downing Street to a ‘bring your own booze” party on May 20, 2020.

Fred Bennett died following treatment for leukaemia but his service was massively stripped back because of Government rules placing huge limits on gatherings.

Ms Bennett told Good Morning Britain that the Church was closed and they were limited to an outdoor service which lasted only ten minutes.

She said: “Fred is buried in the churchyard in our village.

“We weren’t able to have a church service because the church was closed.

“So we had just a graveside ten-minute service with ten of us.

“That included Fred’s granddad, his aunt and uncles, and some of his cousins but not all of them.

“And none of his friends, and none of our friends.” 

The email encouraged staffers to “bring your own booze” because it “would be nice to make the most of the lovely weather and have some socially distanced drinks in the No10 garden this evening”.
