    Campaign group Leave.EU has been fined £70,000 after an investigation into funding during the 2016 referendum.

    The Electoral Commission concluded that the campaign group incorrectly reported what it spent during the referendum.

    It found Leave.EU failed to report at least £77,380 of spending and exceeded the limit for non-party registered campaigners by at least 10%.

    Leave.EU founder Arron Banks said previously that he would “vigorously” contest the allegations.
