House of Commons gives award to 'best political dog'

Charlie, who belongs to Helen Grant, Conservative MP for Maidstone and the Weald, was judged the 'best political dog' in an awards' ceremony outside Parliament.

He beat off competition from 11 other dogs for the prize, which acknowleges his role in helping campaign for political and charitable causes.

The awards were also intended to raise awareness of the work of the Dogs Trust and the Kennel Club.
