Sources in the Liberal Democrats have told ITV News that five new major donors – giving £50,000 each a year – have signed up in the past 10 days, including one who previously gave to the Conservatives.
The donors have each added their names to a group known as the Liberal Alliance that provide funds to specifically target Conservative MPs in so-called Blue Wall seats…
Sources said that two of the donors had approached the party out of the blue to ask if they could help.
