Kent MP calls for tougher 'chugger' regulations

A Kent MP has called for tougher regulations on street fundraisers, claiming rules recently brought in do not go far enough.

Restrictions introduced in August 2012 mean fundraisers cannot follow a person or stand within 3m (10ft) of a shop.

But Dover and Deal MP Charlie Elphicke said they would be enforced by a charity-led body and it would not work.
