Good morning. I'm Noel King. A London Assembly committee got a surprise visit recently from a squirrel. It reportedly dashed into the council room and scurried around. Delightfully, this was a meeting of the city's environmental committee. A Green Party member joked the squirrel wanted to make sure there was a voice representing the natural world at the meeting. The one downside - some school kids who were there to learn about the political process became rather distracted. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
