Nigel Farage fined for breaking election law over donation

The BBC reports:

UKIP leader Nigel Farage has been fined £200 by the Electoral Commission, while the Conservative Party has forfeited an “impermissible” £28,000 donation.

Mr Farage’s fine relates to the failure to declare donated office space worth £3,800 per year.

The Electoral Commission said the breach dated back to 2001 but saw “no intent to hide the donations” and said the fine had been paid.
