The former Conservative MP for Castle Point and a UKIP election agent will go on trial charged with electoral fraud.
Former Conservative MP Bob Spink, 68, who defected to UKIP and became its first ever MP in 2008, has denied electoral fraud alongside 38-year-old James Parkin.
The pair are accused of submitting false signatures on UKIP nomination papers during the local elections for Castle Point Borough Council in south Essex in 2016.
They appeared before Basildon Crown Court and will stand trial in November.
