UKIP leader Nigel Farage 'faces complaint' over EU expenses

15 April 2014 Last updated at 13:52 BST

The UKIP leader Nigel Farage has dismissed claims that he has abused the European Parliament's expenses system as "outrageous, ridiculous and absurd".

The Times said a former party official had raised questions about how Mr Farage used his "general expenditure allowance" and as a result had taken the matter to the EU's anti-fraud body.

The allowance is intended to cover the running of his constituency office.
