'Partygate hurts' says grieving Richard who lost three family members to COVID

Sky, 27 Jan 2022
Richard Macvicar lost his mother, father and sister within three weeks of each other to COVID.

He got in touch with Sky News and joined Sarah-Jane Mee to share his thoughts on so-called 'partygate'.

He and his family decided to follow the guidelines and did not have any official funerals because of the rule of six. And he says 'partygate' matters because his family and others didn't get to "grieve properly".

He said he would have "loved ten minutes with them, just to say ta-ra."
