An MP has admitted playing a popular puzzle game on his iPad while in a parliamentary committee meeting.

Nigel Mills was pictured playing the hit online game Candy Crush Saga during a Works and Pensions Committee meeting, of which he is a member.

The Amber Valley MP has reportedly been playing the game over a period of two and a half hours, while the Conservative, elected in 2010, admitted what he had done.

Mr Mills told the Sun: 'It was a long meeting on pension reforms, which is an important issue that I take very seriously.

'There was a bit of the meeting that I wasn't focusing on and I probably had a game or two.

You may also want to watch:

'I shouldn't do it but if you check the meeting I would say I was fully engaged in asking questions that I thought were particularly important in how we get the pensions issue right. I shall try not to do it in the future.'
