THE latest expenses of Isle of Wight MP Andrew Turner have been published online by the Independent Parliamentary Standards Association (IPSA).

The payments, for August and September 2013, cover a host of claims, from travel costs and accommodation, to copies of the County Press and £7 worth of sweets for his stand at the Garlic Festival.

In total, Mr Turner received £8070.54, which was the 252nd highest out of 646.

His accommodation expenses totalled £1,465, the 356th highest, while his office costs of £5064.79 were 78th highest.

His office costs covered everything from £577 for legal expenses insurance to £14 for a fan and £10 for coffee.

Mr Turner, who was re-adopted as 2015 Conservative parliamentary candidate for the Island on Friday, recently gave up renting a second home in London in favour of using hotels.
