Guinea pig explores corridors of power
Buster the guinea pig had a day at the heart of government when children from Lympsham School, in Weston-super-Mare, took their mascot with them on a visit to Parliament. Wells MP Tessa Munt, who welcomed them was surprised to see Buster, but House of Commons authorities were happy to allow him through the security gates once they realised he would not run around the corridors. Ms Munt said: "Many local school groups visit me in the House of Commons. As to Buster he was very well behaved."
