Christmas has come early for the children of George Osborne, with the Chancellor posting a picture of a new puppy.
Mr Osborne said his children, Luke, 12, and Liberty, 10, had named the Bichon Frise 'Lola'.
Mr Osborne revealed that he was already struggling with some 'business' issues, tweeting: "Some early issues with toilet training ... but we don't care. We love her."
It remains to be seen how Lola will get on with the family's cat Freya, who already lives in the flat above Number 10.
