In Video: MP Goldsmith in angry 10-minute news spat on Channel 4

Tory MP Zac Goldsmith engaged in a furious on-air row last night over a broadcaster's investigation into his General Election campaign spending which is being examined by a Westminster elections watchdog.

Mr Goldsmith repeatedly denied doing anything wrong, insisting he had followed exactly the same practices in declaring campaign funds as every other MP.

He had a heated 10-minute spat with Channel 4 News presenter Jon Snow over whether the programme had previously refused him a right to reply.

The Electoral Commission yesterday began assessing information about Mr Goldsmith's successful campaign in Richmond Park to determine whether there is any case for an inquiry to be launched.
