UKIP leader Nigel Farage 'faces complaint' over EU expenses

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.
