Labour call for explanation after donor access claims

Tom Watson, deputy chair of the Labour Party, has called for more details about "premier league dinners" held by David Cameron after a Sunday Times allegation that access could be gained to the prime minister for a donation of £250,000 a year.

Conservative Party co-treasurer Peter Cruddas has resigned after secretly filmed footage showed him apparently offering the access.

He said £250,000 gave "premier league" access, including dinner with Mr Cameron and possibly the chance to influence government policy.

Party officials said no donation had actually been accepted.
