Bond actor Rory Kinnear says he is “haunted by the tinkling of glasses” after revealing his sister’s funeral was held on the same day as the Downing Street lockdown party on May 20, 2020.

Boris Johnson apologised on Wednesday for attending a “bring your own booze” party in the Downing Street garden in May 2020, when the rest of the country was in lockdown. Read his full statement here.

The PM insisted he thought the party was work-related, but said he recognised “with hindsight I should have sent everyone back inside”.

The apology has done little for the families like Rory’s, whose 48-year-old sister Karina died after contracting coronavirus.

In a powerful essay for The Guardian, he described how he had not been able to hug his grieving mum and sister as they sat metres apart in the garden after the funeral, and said the new revelations about a garden party on the same day proved “repeated failures of those in power to understand”.

The Bond star wrote: “Like those assembled with their bottles in Downing Street, I, too, had broken the government’s existing guidelines, implemented to mitigate the spread of Covid-19, in a familiar garden.

“After my sister Karina’s funeral, I had gone to my mother’s house. It was a baking hot day and, while the circumstances didn’t really allow me to “make the most of the lovely weather”, the sunshine did permit me and my other sister, Kirsty, to sit in our mum’s garden, at the state-appointed distance from each other, and recall the many joys, as well as strains, that Karina’s life had brought.

“There were three of us in the garden, from three separate households, one more than was permitted. It might not have been exactly to the letter of the law, but we reckoned it was the least our grief would permit.”

The James Bond actor said his sister Karina had tested positive for coronavirus early last week, with the virus attacking her stomach, lungs, and kidneys.

Karina died on Sunday afternoon, with her family saying goodbye over FaceTime and the telephone. The theatre star said he had ‘played Karina one of her favorite songs and told her how proud he was to have been her brother.

Karina had been left severely disabled after suffering a lack of oxygen at birth that caused severe brain damage. She became paralyzed from the waist down aged 19 following a lifesaving operation on her spine. She lived in care home Roy Kinnear House, which was set up by her mother and opened in 2000.
