Farage facing donation fine

Nigel Farage could face punishment from the elections watchdog after failing to declare £200,000 of donations.

The Ukip leader apparently disclosed to Brussels authorities that he had been receiving free use of an office in Britain since 2001 - but did not tell the Electoral Commission. Penalties for such an offence could include fines of up to £20,000.
