Britain’s health ministry has announced plans to investigate how the CCTV footage of former health secretary Matt Hancock embracing his aide was leaked to the press, Reuters reported on Sunday.

U.K Health Secretary, Matt Hancock resigned Saturday after breaking the country’s coronavirus rules by kissing a senior aide in his office.

In a letter to the UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Hancock said the government “owe it to people who have sacrificed so much in this pandemic to be honest when we have let them down” and reiterated his previous apology for breaking the government guidance on social distancing from people outside a close household bubble.

Matt Hancock’s resignation came after pictures of him kissing an aide in his office in violation of Covid norms were published by a national daily.

It comes after leaked CCTV images showed the 42-year-old married Conservative Party MP kissing Gina Coladangelo, 43, in his Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) office.

Sajid Javid, who was the U.K. Treasury chief earlier in Mr. Johnson’s government before resigning in February 2020, will replace Mr. Hancock as health secretary.

Mr. Johnson said he was sorry to receive Mr. Hancock’s resignation and that he “should leave office very proud of what you have achieved — not just in tackling the pandemic, but even before COVID-19 struck us.”
