The Liberal Democrats campaigned for Remain in the EU referendum

The Liberal Democrats have been fined £18,000 for breaking spending rules in last year’s EU referendum.

The Electoral Commission said the party had “failed to deliver a complete and accurate spending return”.

Proper receipts and invoices were not provided for 80 payments worth more than £80,000, the watchdog said.

Meanwhile the official Remain campaign, now known as Open Britain, has been fined £1,250 for wrongly reporting its spending.
