A Conservative candidate has been charged over his election expenses.
Craig Mackinlay, who is running for South Thanet in the general election on 8 June, has been investigated for alleged overspending in the 2015 General Election campaign.
Mr Mackinlay defeated the then UKIP leader Nigel Farage in the ballot.
Police forces have been investigating if some Tory agents should have filed costs for battle bus visits to constituencies under local expenses.
The Conservative Party said they had been campaigning “across the country for the return of a Conservative government” and, as a result, associated costs were regarded as national and not local expenditure.
