Election staff had to deal with a particularly prickly ‘voter’ in Exeter yesterday.
A hedgehog turned up unexpectedly at a polling station in the city whilst voting for the General Election was taking place.
The hedgehog appeared at the polling station at the Sea Cadets premises in Haven Banks.
Poll Clerk Maggie Keenan said the visitor caused quite a stir amongst voters, climbing the steps and walking past a teller.
“He casually strolled in and members of the public were very intrigued with him and took lots of pictures,” said Maggie.
