Prime Minister Boris Johnson is heading to Scotland for a two-week summer holiday, according to a report.

Mr Johnson previously spoke about allowing a ‘brief staycation to creep into the agenda, if that’s possible’ when quizzed about his summer plans.

The Sunday Times reported the Prime Minister, fiancee Carrie Symonds and their son Wilfred would travel north of the border next weekend.

A No 10 source declined to comment but did not deny the report.

Speaking last month, Mr Johnson said: ‘I would encourage people still to think of wonderful staycations here in the UK.

‘There are all sorts of fantastic destinations, the best in the world, I would say.

‘All my happiest holiday memories are of holiday vacations here in the UK, bucket-and-spade jobs or whatever, and I thoroughly, thoroughly recommend it, and I’m sure that people will have a great time over the summer.’
