LONDON (AP) — British police were called to the London home of prime ministerial contender Boris Johnson after a neighbor reported an altercation.
The Metropolitan Police force says officers were called in the early hours of Friday to the home Johnson shares with partner Carrie Symonds by someone “concerned for the welfare of a female neighbor.”
The Guardian newspaper said neighbors had reported hearing screaming, shouting and banging.
Police said officers found that all occupants were “safe and well” and no offenses had been committed.
