Boris Johnson’s speedy return from New York was brought to a grinding halt this morning when the Prime Minister found himself locked out of Number 10 Downing Street.

Tabloid fears that “treacherous remainers” had changed the locks on the famous front door proved to be unfounded when it was later revealed that the PM had simply misplaced his door keys.

The Prime Minister cut short his attendance of a United Nations Climate Summit in New York, following the Supreme Court’s verdict on Tuesday that his prorogation of Parliament was unlawful.

In his rush to pack for his return flight, aides say Johnson put his door keys in his bag rather than the usual right-hand trouser pocket.

Mr Johnson has favoured the right trouser pocket as a key repository ever since his first brush with power at Eton.

Appointed as dormitory prefect, a young Alexander Johnson was entrusted with the keys to both the tuck shop and stationery cupboard.

With a by-election, six parliamentary votes, and one Supreme Court hearing under his belt, his house keys are the ninth thing Johnson has lost since successfully unlocking the door to Number 10 just sixty-three days ago.

Speaking in the Commons, Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn said he would happily look after the keys to Number 10, but stopped short of calling for a general election.
