A political group that claims to be an independent grassroots campaign representing ordinary British taxpayers has received hundreds of thousands of dollars in foreign donations.

The Taxpayers' Alliance (TPA) has received at least $286,000 (£223,300) from US-based donors in the last five years, including $100,000 originating from a billionaire-founded religious trust incorporated in the Bahamas.

An American group set up specifically to support the alliance has given more than $186,000 from donors whose identities are secret, according to documents filed with the US Internal Revenue Service.
