Buddies: Jennifer Arcuri benefited from her friendship with Boris Johnson when he was London mayor.

How awkward for a prime minister beleaguered by multiple allegations of dishonesty – now he’s facing claims of corruption too.

Boris Johnson is under pressure to explain why he allegedly failed to declare an interest in the allocation of public money to a close friend while he was mayor of London.

The Sunday Times reported that a company run by Jennifer Arcuri, an American technology entrepreneur and friend of Johnson, was given tens of thousands of pounds in public funds and access to overseas trade missions led by Johnson during the prime minister’s time as mayor.

Downing Street has refused to comment on the reports. But Labour is demanding that No 10 provide a full explanation for how the funds and favours were granted to Arcuri.
