George the dog at a polling station in east London

George is apparently the first dog at a polling station in London, says owner Nadya Fadih-Phoenix. 

She said: "He helped me do democracy at 6.25 and he appears to be the first dog at a polling station in London. I (his human friend) turned 90 three days ago as well."
