Essex MP Interviewed Over Election Expenses

A Conservative Essex MP has been interviewed by police over general election expenses.

Will Quince MP

Will Quince, the MP for Colchester, said he had been told by Essex Police he faced no further action after voluntarily attending an interview under caution last January.

In a statement posted on his Twitter feed, Mr Quince welcomed the decision by the police but said the complaint against him had been "vexatious and politically motivated".

The disclosure follows reports that Craig Mackinlay, who fought off a challenge from former Ukip leader Nigel Farage to hold Thanet South for the Tories, had been questioned for six hours last week by Kent Police.
