Simon Danczuk to be investigated by expenses watchdog
Rochdale MP Simon Danczuk is to be investigated for fraud by the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority over his expenses claims.
Local Liberal Democrats asked police to check claims the Labour MP had wrongly claimed £9,700 in expenses for his children to live in London.
Mr Danczuk said he had done nothing wrong in claiming the allowance.
He said two of his children visit him in London and the other two could do so in the future.
