A Conservative MP and music fan was not able to completely fulfil on his pledge to his Hove constituents to wear his Iron Maiden T-shirt in the House of Commons.

Mike Weatherley said he had worn it in Westminster Hall, but added: "It's not allowed in the Commons, I asked the Speaker if he'd give me permission and he said no."

He was on the Daily Politics discussing the links between music and politics.
