The Parliamentary standards watchdog has begun an inquiry into Bristol NW Conservative MP Charlotte Leslie over political donations.

Last month she apologised to the Commons for failing to register more than £20,000 in donations to her local party from the boss of the Bristol Port company.

She later spoke in debates about the proposed Severn Barrage, which the company opposes, without referring to the donations.
