Brown to repay 12,415 expenses

Politicians including Gordon Brown and David Cameron have been ordered to pay back thousands to the taxpayer after an independent audit of all MPs' expenses claims since 2004.

Gordon Brown is to return over £12,000 to the tax payer, much of it spent on cleaning; David Cameron faces questions over his mortgage; Nick Clegg has been told to hand back more than £900 for gardening.

Jo Coburn reports.
