Dogs may not be able to vote for the next government in the General Election but they are allowed to come and watch, as long as they don’t cause any disruptions.

Today thousands of them turned up to support their vote-casting owners, and the hashtag #DogsAtPollingStations was soon trending on Twitter.

#DogsAtPollingStations trending in London.

Dogs weren’t the only creatures taking an interest in the democratic process.
