After the commission launched its investigation, the party undertook an internal review, unearthing 24 other undeclared election expenses totalling £109,777.

The watchdog has notified the police of a possible electoral offence . In addition, invoices supporting 122 out of the 307 payments were missing from the return.

The Limpdums said it was a result of “human error   and failure of process”.
