SKY SNOOZE: Kay Burley Suspended for SIX Months after COVID-19 Rule Break

KAY Burley has been suspended by Sky News for six months after she was busted breaking COVID-19 guidelines despite attacking Government ministers and Dominic Cummings for breaking COVID rules. 

The hypocrisy was too much and it seems Sky has judged that Kay Burley can no longer report on COVID-19 and grill ministers without her own rule breaks being brought up.

Sources told Politicalite that Sky hopes the COVID-19 restrictions will be over within six months and Kay will be able to return to front the channels morning programmes.

Sky political reporter Beth Rigby has also been rapped and suspended for three months along with correspondent Inzamam Rashid.

In a statement Sky News said: “A small number of Sky News staff attended a social event in London on Saturday evening during which COVID-19 guidelines were breached.”

“As a result of an internal review Sky News presenter Kay Burley has agreed to be off air for six months, and political editor Beth Rigby and correspondent Inzamam Rashid have agreed to be off air for three months.”
