The former foreign secretary has apologised to MPs in the House of Commons after failing to declare nearly £53,000 in earnings on time.

The former foreign secretary registered nine payments totalling £52,722 - nearly 70% of his MP salary - after the 28-day deadline, the House of Commons' committee on standards found.

The payments were for royalties from books Mr Johnson has written and payments from The Daily Telegraph for his weekly column.
