Calls grow to probe UK donation scandal

British PM under pressure after party treasurer is filmed promising access to 10 Downing Street.

    Britain's opposition party is calling for a full inquiry into a donation scandal that has embarrassed Prime Minister David Cameron and his Conservative party.

    Cameron has promised a "proper inquiry" into donations after the resignation of Tory co-treasurer Peter Cruddas after reporters filmed him saying donations to the Conservative party could ensure access to the prime minister.
