A squirrel caused a scene at a London Assembly this week.

The fury friend was spotted racing round the assembly chamber about six times while the environment committee was holding a meeting.

Employee Giles Broadbent told the London Evening Standard: ''It was a rare and delightful visitor - there were some school children that came in to watch some of the dealings in the chamber and they were obviously more distracted by him.

''He was quite a plucky little thing, as well - he came in and out maybe six or seven times and scurried around.''
