SIR Keir Starmer will be investigated by police over ‘beergate’ allegations.

Cops initially believed the Labour leader hadn’t broken Covid lockdown rules when he boozed and scoffed a takeaway curry with colleagues in April 2021 when most indoor gatherings were banned.

But in a major U-turn, Durham Constabulary is ready to probe the claims fully, The Telegraph reports.

Starmer was seen clutching a bottle of San Miguel at the bash with MPS and aides last spring, when coronavirus restrictions meant no more than six people could dine together inside.

Trending In The News later revealed £200-worth of curry had been ordered for up to 30 people.

Insisting he hadn’t broken any rules, Starmer told Good Morning Britain presenter Susanna Reid: “People went through the kitchen, got a plate, had something to eat along with their work.”
