EAST Londonderry's five MLAs racked-up expenses totalling £87,688 in the space of 12 months.

According to figures published by the Assembly last week, the politicians' travel budget alone reached over £5000.

The remaining sum was largely spent on office rental and staff costs.

Top spender was Sinn Féin's Caoimhe Fleming-Archibald, whose expenses totalled £19,043.
