Boris Johnson gets motorbike for Christmas from Carrie Symonds

The Prime Minister has been given a motorbike for Christmas by his partner Carrie Symonds.

According to the Mail on Sunday, Boris Johnson was given a second-hand Yamaha TTR 125, worth around £1,000.

While the Prime Minister will likely not be able to use the new vehicle on public roads due to security concerns, his country residence at Chequers may provide space for him to use his new present.

Mr Johnson told journalists last week that he would like a new bicycle for Christmas, but said he would have to buy it himself. He was forced to give up cycling around London when he became foreign secretary.

Mr Johnson is currently holidaying on the private island of Mustique in the Caribbean with Ms Symonds.

Known for its white sandy beaches, the exclusive island in the archipelago nation of St Vincent and the Grenadines is a favourite of the rich and famous, with Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger owning property there.

Pictures released on Saturday appeared to show Mr Johnson and Ms Symonds travelling in economy class seats on a British Airways flight to St Lucia, before travelling on to Mustique.

Mr Johnson is reportedly staying with the Von Bismark family – descended from the first German chancellor, Otto Von Bismark – in a £20,000 per week villa which The Times said they had accepted as a gift.
