The European Parliament has announced that it will investigate donations made by the millionaire pro-Brexit businessman Arron Banks to Nigel Farage.

This programme revealed last week that Mr Banks funded a Chelsea home, a car and a driver to the tune of £450,000 in the year following the Brexit referendum.

Today the Electoral Commission visited the offices of Mr Farage’s Brexit Party to review the way it receives funding.

Nigel Farage has denied any wrongdoing and said his party was “more compliant” than any others standing in the European elections.
