Timothy Straker QC & Sappho Dias who represented Kent Police argued that the allegations warranted an extension to the time limit to investigate them further.

Kent Police has been granted more time to probe allegations about Conservative election expenses in South Thanet at the general election.

A judge has ruled there was a case for an extension because of the exceptional circumstances involved and there was a very significant public interest in the claims, first made by Channel 4 news, being investigated.

The allegations concern whether spending limits had been breached in South Thanet and were not properly recorded by the Conservative party.
