MPs will not be able to buy taxpayer-funded second homes under new expenses rules - but will be able to employ relatives.

Members of Parliament will get a 1.5% pay rise of nearly £1,000 from 1 April, taking their basic salary to £65,737 a year.

Three MPs and a peer tell a court they are not guilty of charges of false accounting in relation to their expenses claims.
