Ex-MP Morley jailed over expenses fraud

Former Labour minister Elliot Morley has been sentenced to 16 months in jail for dishonestly claiming more than £30,000 in parliamentary expenses.

He pleaded guilty last month to making excessive claims in bogus mortgage payments.

As a former environment minister, he is the most senior politician to plead guilty to expenses fraud.

Mike Sergeant reports.
