A Bristol MP could face an investigation over her failure to declare cash donations to her local party.

Charlotte Leslie the Conservative member for Bristol North West apologised to the House of Commons earlier this month for failing to comply with the rules. But now a letter of complaint has been made to the Westminster Standards Watchdog.

Ms Leslie asked questions about the proposed Severn barrage but failed to mention that her local party had received £17,000 from the boss of the Bristol Port Company, which opposes it.

Banksy's latest work "Mobile Lovers" has been put on show at the Bristol Museum and Art Gallery while the question of its ownership is resolved.

Our reporter Richard Payne talks to Ray Barnett, the Collections Manager, about the windfall. He says it would be useful if the Bristol street artist let people know what he thought about the controversy but in the meantime people can come to see it for free.

Queues are expected as the latest work by Bristol artist Banksy goes on show, (at 10 am).

The mural, "Mobile Lovers" is at the Bristol Museum and Art Gallery while questions about its ownership are resolved.

It went up on a wall in Clement Street but was taken in by a nearby youth club to keep it safe.

There will be a box for donations to the club beside the work.

ITV News can reveal an investment bank has made a two million pound bid to buy the latest piece of Banksy street art, while the row over its ownership continues.

The offer was made today to the youth club which took the piece off a wall outside its Bristol premises.
