Cameron: MPs must repay claims

Conservative leader David Cameron has 'named and shamed' a number of Tory MPs who have had their expenses questioned and will now repay some of the money.

They include Michael Gove, who will return £7,000 spent on furniture, and Oliver Letwin, who will pay back £2,000 he claimed to repair a pipe under his tennis court.

Mr Cameron also announced a radical overhaul of what his MPs can claim in expenses, saying the public has been "let down".
