A former Tory peer found guilty of fiddling his House of Lords expenses, has successfully sued Essex Police over his arrest for a separate fraud allegation.
While Lord Hanningfield was leader of Essex County Council, it was alleged he'd fraudulently used his corporate credit card.
No charges were brought and the 72-year-old claimed he was unlawfully arrested.
Today a High Court judge agreed with him, and awarded £3,500 in damages. Serena Sandhu reports.
