CROYDON South MP Richard Ottaway's dog narrowly missed out on a medal at Parliament's answer to Crufts.

Roxy, a 13 month old Welsh Springer Spaniel belonging to the veteran Tory, just missed out on a place on the podium at the 22nd annual Westminster Dog of the Year competition.

The contest, organised by the Kennel Club and Dogs Trust, took place yesterday (Thursday) with 22 political poodles (we're not talking about the fine, upstanding MPs there, obviously) doing battle.

The MPs campaigned hard, canvassing for votes from the public before meeting a panel of expert judges to boast about their dog's deeds.

The judging panel - Clarissa Baldwin, CEO of Dogs Trust, Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club Secretary, and Alan Duncan MP, owner of 2013's winning dog Noodle - spent the morning with the mutts before deciding the overall winner was Diesel, belonging to Rob Flello, MP for Stoke-on-Trent South.

Roxy impressed but only just missed out on a place on the podium.

Ruff justice, if you ask us.
