SOME of the animals at London Zoo appear to have been caught up in election fever last week.

With postal forms arriving on doormats the zoo's meerkats posted their own to remind the British public how "simples" it is to vote.

The postbox is sure to stimulate the meerkats natural curiosity, as unusual objects are always worth investigating and the group will love having the chance to be nosey.

Zookeeper Robert Harland said: "Meerkats all work for the good of the group and often make decisions together so they will probably all vote for the same party.
