This story appears to be separate from the wider issue of alleged election fraud by many Conservative candidates.

Apparently the donations come from 1st Land Ltd, a firm at the centre of an inquiry into the disappearance of millions of pounds of taxpayers’ money.

Hidden payments totalling £30,000 to a Tory MP’s general election campaign are being investigated by the police.

The BBC has established the money for David Mackintosh’s Northampton South fighting fund, in three £10,000 donations, was disguised in terms of who made them.

The Electoral Commission has passed a file on the case to the police.

Mr Mackintosh, ex-leader of Northampton council, welcomed the investigation and “will co-operate fully with police”.

“I had no reason to believe that the donations were from anyone other than the named donors,” he said.
