Stansted Mountfitchet’s latest arrivals have been named after the leaders of the five parties vying for seats in today’s General Election.

David, Nigel, Ed, Nick and Natalie are the five rescued turkeys that now live at the castle and have all been named after the leading politicians and live in the castle grounds with all the other rescued animals.

A spokesman said: “The party leaders are all ‘tie-ing’ for victory and talking turkey to the electorate, but whoever wins the election the appropriately named turkey will go on to rule the roost with his friends at Mountfitchet Castle and live out the rest of their lives in peace and survive many happy Christmases to come.”
