Suspended Tory Afzal Amin likely 'to be removed within days'
A suspended Conservative election candidate is likely to be removed from the party within days, a senior Conservative source has told the BBC.
Afzal Amin is accused of attempting a plot with the English Defence League in which they would announce a march in the Dudley North constituency and he would take credit when it was scrapped.
Mr Amin, who denies any wrongdoing, faces a party hearing on Tuesday.
He told BBC Radio 4's Today he would make a "robust defence" of his actions.
But the Conservative source said it would be hard to justify talks with the EDL.
