£2.6m PRESS ROOM: To welcome journalists from today in Downing Street
The new £2.6m Downing Street press briefing room will be the new home to the Prime Minister’s daily coronavirus briefings.
New pictures were two weeks ago and since then, many have criticised the cost the “lacklustre” room.
The US-style briefing room will also see Boris Johnson’s new press secretary Allegra Stratton lead daily televised press briefings from the room - similar to those held in Joe Biden’s White House.
The room features rows of chairs for journalists, facing a stage with a lecturn and two Union flags.
