A county court judgement has been registered against Boris Johnson’s name for an unpaid debt of £535.

The court order, which names Mr Johnson, of 10 Downing Street, was made on 26 October, according to a database of judgements.

The creditor and nature of the debt are not included in the database record, which was first reported by Private Eye magazine.

Downing Street has been contacted for a comment.

County court judgements are issued in England and Wales when people fail to repay money they owe.

“If you get a judgment, this means that the court has formally decided that you owe the money,” according to a government website.

A bailiff “may visit your home if you do not pay your debts”, the website warns.

Banks and loan companies can also use the information to decide whether to issue credit or loans.

“If you’re late with your payments, you could be taken back to court and you may have to pay extra costs,” the website adds.
