Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg has defended his party's decision to keep a £2.4m donation from a man who was later convicted for fraud.

Michael Brown was found guilty of stealing more than £30m from clients in 2008, but Mr Clegg told the Politics Show that his party took "every single step" to check if he was eligible to donate in 2005.
