Tory MP faces trial over election fraud

Craig MacKinlay, 50, who beat leading Brexit figure Nigel Farage in the parliamentary election for the South Thanet in southeastern England in 2015, is accused of making false claims about his spending during the campaign.
Despite the ongoing case against him, he won the seat again in this year's June election.
May's Conservatives lost their majority in that ballot and remain in power only through an agreement with 10 Northern Ireland MPs. If MacKinlay were to be found guilty, he could be jailed for up to a year and there would be pressure for a by-election.
MacKinlay appeared in London's Westminster Magistrates Court on Tuesday alongside his election agent Nathan Gray, 28, and Marion Little, 62, a campaign director from the Conservatives' head office who both also face charges over the expense returns.
