MP to face poll fraud charges.

A Labour MP and her agent are to be charged with fraud offences following a probe into General Election expenses.

Fiona Jones, MP for Newark, and Des Whicher will face charges under the Representation of the People Act.

The move follows a four-month inquiry by Nottinghamshire police into Labour's election campaign funds for the area.

The official cost of the campaign last May was pounds 8514 - around pounds 400 less than the party was allowed to spend.

The MP and her agent are expected to appear before magistrates on May 22.
