A student is being investigating by police and the House of Commons after posing online as the MP for a non-existent constituency - but she claims it is a conceptual art project.

Ellen Kenyon Peers set up a website and Twitter account under the name Ana Key MP, claiming to have become the first Socialist MP to be elected to Westminster after winning the Deptford and Greenwich seat.

The constituency doesn't currently exist, but will do after re-organisation after boundary changes.

On her website, she set up forms for her 'constituents' to fill in with their concerns from local issues, and even advertised surgery times that she would never be able to fulfill. 

She also has blog posts such as calling for Theresa May to stand down, and pledges, particularly based around anti-austerity and linked to the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC). 

She even sent a letter last month using fake House of Commons-headed paper.

After being outed as a fake she released an extended statement on her Twitter feed explaining her actions.

She said: 'I do apologise unreservedly for the misuse of surgery times which were added to the site when the work was examined in July and have not been removed since.

'However, to put minds at rest, I would like to confirm that no potential "constituents" have contacted me (ever) unless they had already agreed to be part of the project.
