Boris Johnson 'given a motorbike for Christmas' by his girlfriend, Carrie Symonds

Boris Johnson was given an off-road motorbike by his girlfriend Carrie Symonds for Christmas, it has been claimed.

The Prime Minister received a second-hand Yamaha TTR 125 from the 31-year-old, according to the Mail on Sunday.

The bike, thought to be worth around £1,000, can reach speeds of up to 55mph.

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 and then Prime Minister because of security precautions.
