Tory MP heckled after constituency meeting


Conservative MP Andrew MacKay who quit as an aide to David Cameron over an "unacceptable" expenses claim has been grilled by his constituents.

More than 350 tickets were requested for the public meeting with the Bracknell MP.

Mr MacKay, who is married to Tory MP Julie Kirkbride, claimed second homes allowances on two separate properties.

The MP has since apologised but vowed to stand at the next general election.

He spoke to BBC Political Correspondent Peter Henley after the meeting - but was heckled by members of the public.
