Robin causes a stir in the Commons

A robin has been spotted flying around in the main chamber of the Commons.

The bird was seen in the ceiling before flying down and landing on a camera during Welsh questions.

MPs were quick to point out the unusual visitor as it flew down during a question by Plaid Cymru Westminster leader Liz Saville Roberts.
