MP James Gray tried to use taxpayers' money to cover the cost of three Remembrance Day wreaths, according to a national newspaper.

The North Wiltshire Gray said he was £60 out of pocket after buying three £20 poppy tributes to lay at Remembrance services, says the Daily Mirror.

When the Fees Office rejected the claims, he said it was unfair as the PM's office paid for wreaths at the Cenotaph.

Mr Gray said: "In the past I'd got the money back so I asked the Leader of the House. The relevant committee informed me it had been a mistake for me to be reimbursed."
