Boris Johnson 'privately warned' Dominic Raab about conduct - as bullying inquiry end in sight

Senior lawyer Adam Tolley KC is leading an investigation into whether Dominic Raab bullied several civil servants following claims they were scared to enter his office and he created a “culture of fear” in one department.

Boris Johnson is understood to have privately warned deputy prime minister Dominic Raab about his conduct.

Mr Raab  is facing a bullying investigation following several complaints about his behaviour by civil servants.

Former prime minister Mr Johnson, who first appointed Mr Raab as deputy PM, is understood to have provided evidence to Adam Tolley KC, the independent lawyer who is carrying out the investigation, The Telegraph reported.

It is very unusual for a former prime minister to be involved in an investigation launched by Downing Street.

Mr Raab, who is deputy PM and justice secretary, was interviewed by Mr Tolley a week ago, indicating the official inquiry could be coming to an end.
