22 March 2011, 10:59

Ex Bury North MP David Chaytor today lost a challenge against the length of his jail sentence for fiddling his parliamentary expenses.

The Lord Chief Justice, Lord Judge, and two other judges sitting at the Court of Appeal in London refused to reduce the 61-year-old's 18-month prison term.

Chaytor, who forged tenancy documents and invoices to falsely claim more than £22,000 of taxpayers' money for rent and IT work from the Commons authorities, was jailed on January 7.

Chaytor claimed he should have been locked up for 12 months instead.
