Morley suspended by Labour party

Labour MP Elliot Morley has been suspended from the party after he admitted claiming £16,000 for a mortgage he had already paid off.

Mr Morley has said it was a "mistake" and has paid the money back.

Prime Minister Gordon Brown made the announcement as he launched Labour's European election campaign.
