Boris Johnson's leadership campaign is in turmoil after police were called to his home overnight.

Neighbours reported hearing screams and banging, his partner Carrie Symonds shouting "get off me" and "get out of my flat", the Daily Mail reports.

Johnson, 55, is the favourite to be the next Prime Minister of the UK, taking over from Theresa May, who failed to get her Brexit vision across the line.

In a recording heard by the Mail, Johnson reportedly can be heard yelling at Symonds, 31, to "get off my f***ing laptop" before a loud crashing sound. Symonds can reportedly be heard complaining Johnson spilled red wine on her sofa.

"You just don't care for anything because you're spoilt. You have no care for money or anything," she's heard to say, the Mail reports.

"There was a smashing sound of what sounded like plates," a neighbour told the Guardian.

"There was a couple of very loud screams that I'm certain were Carrie and she was shouting to 'get out' a lot."

After the screaming, one witness said there was "silence", but they called 999 anyway.

Police left shortly after they arrived, both Johnson and Symonds saying they were "safe and well".

"The caller was concerned for the welfare of a female neighbour," Scotland Yard said in a statement.

"Police attended and spoke to all occupants of the address, who were all safe and well.

"There were no offences or concerns apparent to the officers and there was no cause for police action."

Johnson has shared the flat with Symonds since leaving his second wife last year, after she accused him of cheating. They had four kids together.
