Kay Burley said he was “stupid” for breaking the rules of the coronavirus last December.
A 60-year-old Sky News reporter was suspended from her role for six months with full payment after breaking the limit because she had a birthday party in London, which was then under Tier 2 restrictions. ..
Kay ate with eight friends and colleagues at a London restaurant between the two tables.
Tier 2 restrictions at the time meant that 6 rules were applied in outdoor areas and social mixing outside the household was prohibited in indoor areas.

Sky News journalist Kay broke the “inadvertently” rule late the same night because “while waiting for a taxi house, I easily stopped by another restaurant to spend a penny.”
Kay was also reported to have invited four colleagues to her home.
Kay talked about his rule violation and said he was unaware of the rule violation at first.
Kay said: “I thought I was Covid compliant. It wasn’t. I made a mistake.
“I was stupid and disappointed myself and the viewer. I’m sorry for what I did and the heartache that caused my loyal friends with me at the time.
“I paid for my mistakes. It’s quite natural. Viewers told me how dissatisfied they were with me and that it was right to do so.
“As time went on, the music in my mood changed and the viewer wanted me back.”
An internal review in December revealed that “a small number of Sky News staff attended a social event in London” that violated Covid-19 rules.
“Everyone involved regretted and apologized for the incident. Everyone in Sky News is expected to comply with the rules, and the company takes such violations very seriously,” the statement said. ..
Meanwhile, political editor Beth Rigby and correspondent Inzamum Rashid in northern England were aired after the review.
Following the news of Kay’s birthday celebration, Kay used social media to share his apologies.

“Saturday night, I was enjoying my 60th birthday at a Covid-compliant restaurant.
“It’s embarrassing to say that I inadvertently broke the rules late in the evening.”
Kay added in a subsequent tweet: “I was waiting for the taxi to come home at 11:00 pm.
“Desperate for the toilet, I stopped by another restaurant to use the penny. I can only apologize.”
