An MP has admitted travelling 250 miles by train while displaying coronavirus symptoms, after being told to self isolate. Darlington MP Peter Gibson, part of the 2019 intake of so-called Red Wall Tories, said after developing a cough, he travelled 250 miles by train from the capital to the North East of England prior to lockdown to isolate at home. When he was asked why he had not stayed in London, he replied: "It was several weeks before lockdown and at the time I had no London address." Mr Gibson explained he was staying in a spare room of someone else's flat and did not have a permanent London base. He later told the Northern Echo newspaper he began coughing on March 11 and called the MP's coronavirus helpline. "I was advised if my normal mode of transport was the train I should use that but should isolate and keep myself to myself, which is what I did," he told the newspaper. "I came home and self-isolated in my house, away from other members of the household, eating alone, using a separate bathroom. I did that for seven days."
