The christening gift given to Prince George by the Prime Minister's Cabinet was a toy box made by a family-run business in Leeds.

The hand-crafted pine box was made by Hibba Toys UK in Shadwell, which is run by Waheed Ahmad and his wife Lubna.

The christening of Prince George took place earlier in the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace in London.

Prince George, son of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, was born in London on 22 July.

Paid for by the Cabinet members, the £325 toy box features rope handles, a hand carved teddy and soldier.

Hibba Toys has been run by the Ahmad family for eight years.

The company was named after the Ahmad's 10-year-old daughter, Hibba.
