UK MPs in 'cash-for-policy' sting

TV show exposes former ministers offering to influence policy for money.

    Several British politicians have been caught up in a fresh political scandal nearly a year after an investigation revealed the widespread misuse of parliamentary expenses by MPs.

    An undercover investigation by the UK's Channel Four Dispatches programme has shown former government ministers offering to influence policy in return for cash. 

    The revelations come just weeks before national elections in the UK.
