Oxford-based Member of the European Parliament Catherine Bearder has become a trustee for a wildlife charity.

Ms Bearder has been given the new role at the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW).

The Liberal Democrat was re-elected as an MEP for South East England last month.

Ms Bearder has previously worked to tackle the illegal wildlife trade and helped write the EU’s Action Plan against wildlife trafficking.
