Scouts from Norwich visited the home of the Queen and the prime minister during a visit to London.

The 17th Norwich Scouts, which are based at St George's Church on Sprowston Road, enjoyed the surprise addition to their tour of parliament when they came to see Norwich MP Chloe Smith in London.

As part of a week-long camp they visited Buckingham Palace as well as posing for a picture outside the famous Downing Street front door.

Ms Smith said: 'I love including constituents in parliament and it's really easy to organise a historical and educational tour – just contact me. I invite all Scouts, Guides, Cubs, Brownies, Beavers, Rainbows and more from north Norwich to visit – and you can see how much fun this troop had. School groups in particular can get special sessions and may also get money off the transport to get to London.'
