Labour MEP jailed for fraud

Disgraced Labour MEP Peter Skinner has been jailed for four years for fraud.

Skinner served three terms as a Labour MEP for the south east of England between 1999 and 2014. Between 2007 and 2009 he stole about £100k from the taxpayer which he used to pay his divorce settlement and fund a honeymoon in the US for his second marriage.

Labour say Skinner is no longer a member of their party but his website still hasn't been updated.
