Labour MP suspended over expenses


MP David Chaytor has been suspended by his party over allegations he claimed for a mortgage that had been paid off.

The Daily Telegraph says the Bury North MP took nearly £13,000 for the flat in London after it was paid off in 2004.

He was quoted by the Telegraph as saying he had made an "unforgivable error in my accounting procedures for which I apologise unreservedly".

Carole Walker reports.
