According to a joint investigation by The Guardian and the Daily Mirror, Mr Cummings travelled to his family’s farm in Durham – and it was on this date that Mr Cummings’ family were spoken to by the police.
A spokesperson for Durham Constabulary said: “On Tuesday, March 31, our officers were made aware of reports that an individual had travelled from London to Durham and was present at an address in the city.
“Officers made contact with the owners of that address who confirmed that the individual in question was present and was self-isolating in part of the house.
“In line with national policing guidance, officers explained to the family the arrangements around self-isolation guidelines and reiterated the appropriate advice around essential travel.”

In a Spectator column, Mr Cummings’ wife, Mary Wakefield, detailed his illness.
“I felt breathless, sometimes achy, but Dom couldn’t get out of bed,” she said.
“Day in, day out for ten days he lay doggo with a high fever and spasms that made the muscles lump and twitch in his legs. He could breathe, but only in a limited, shallow way.”
