Former Wren to Devon MP: You Sir are a disgrace

A former Wren has described her local MP as a 'disgrace' in a letter she gave him at a Remembrance Day Parade.

Fiona Lang, from Barnstaple, gave it to North Devon Liberal Democrat Sir Nick Harvey.

In it she criticised him for claiming travel expenses to a remembrance service in 2011.

He subsequently paid it back - explaining the claim had been submitted in error.

A video showing a former Royal Navy Wren confronting her local MP in Devon has attracted worldwide attention.
