Ian Paisley said that a complaint was filed by "political rivals"

A second council has been accused of using taxpayers' money to sponsor a table at an electoral constituency for a member of parliament.

Causeway Coast and Glens Council paid £ 1,500 for the table during last September's event, organized by Ian Paisley of the DUP.

It had previously been revealed that Mid and East Antrim Borough Council had sponsored another table for the same sum.

That is now being treated as a "gift" to the North Antrim MP by the Election Commission.

The municipality of Causeway Coast and Glens said the payment fell within its guidelines.
