MP made financial error 'due to dyslexia'

A Conservative MP has claimed her dyslexia was one of the reasons she failed to register £28,000 in donations to her local Conservative Association.

Charlotte Leslie, the MP for Bristol North West, admitted the mistake was her fault but said her dyslexia made it difficult to read paperwork.

She told BBC Radio 5 live's Victoria Derbyshire: "Looking back it sounds terribly naive but that was the situation."
