A Tory MP's general election bid got donations from a firm at the centre of an inquiry into the disappearance of millions of pounds of taxpayers' money.

A total of £30,000 was sent to David Mackintosh's Northampton South Fighting Fund from 1st Land Ltd.

It received council loan money intended to rebuild the town's football ground.
