The MP representing Grantham has claimed over £650 in expenses towards the cost of heating his home.

Conservative MP Nick Boles is one of 340 MPs to have claimed back on their energy bills for their second homes, revealed in a Sunday Mirror investigation.

The newspaper reported that Mr Boles claimed £673.05 towards electricty, gas and other fuel.

Constituent Dave Wilson, of Canterbury Close in Grantham, is “disgusted” by the news.

The 62-year-old said: “It’s completely wrong, it’s obscene. Some people can’t afford to put their heating and some are having to go to foodbanks and the rest of it.

“He’s completely out of touch with with society.”
