But the PM now faces fresh danger as the second half of the Sue Gray report prepares to reveal the extent of lockdown-breaking in No10.

It means the PM and Carrie have both avoided fines for a gathering in the No10 flat on November 13 where Abba music was blared.

The PM, Carrie and Rishi Sunak were all fined for a birthday party in the Cabinet Room.

Fines were handed down to 53 men and 73 women for eight gatherings in Downing Street during lockdown.

Twenty-eight people received more than one fine, with one person stung with five.

It includes the infamous “BYOB” knees-up in the Downing Street garden and the do on the eve of Prince Philip’s funeral.

Twelve detectives have been trawling through 345 documents including emails, door logs, diary entries and witness statements.

More than 500 pics have also been scoured at a total cost of almost half a million pounds to the taxpayer.

Nobody was interviewed under caution, with the Met instead handing out questionnaires.

Mr Johnson will now be waiting nervously for the second half of the Gray report, which was kept under lock and key while cops investigated.

The first half of her internal probe criticised a culture of drinking in Downing Street – with the second half expected to be even more scathing.

Acting Deputy Commissioner Helen Ball said: “The information that we received with regard to the alleged breaches in Downing Street and Whitehall was sufficient to reach our criteria to begin such an investigation.

“Our investigation was thorough and impartial and was completed as quickly as we could, given the amount of information that needed to be reviewed and the importance of ensuring that we had strong evidence for each FPN referral. This investigation is now complete.”
