MPs on Westminster cat of the year voting fraud claims

One cat has been withdrawn from a contest among feline-owning MPs after claims of vote rigging when one entrant gained 30,000 votes in seven hours.

Eight pets are left in the contest organised by Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, and Jo Coburn spoke to two of their owners - Conservative Justin Tomlinson and Labour's Bill Esterson - about their pets and the latest claims of electoral fraud in Westminster.
