More than 2,000 tax inspectors will be recruited to crack down on tax evasion among the wealthiest people in the UK, Danny Alexander has said.

The Chief Secretary to the Treasury told the Lib Dem conference that this would ensure 350,000 top earners paid their "fair share" of tax.

Efforts to raise an extra £7bn by 2015 from evaders were "on track", he said.
