    The Tory MP son of TV chef Prue Leith is set to appear in court after his lockdown puppy allegedly ran amok among deer in a park.

    Danny Kruger's Jack Russell terrier Pebble is said to have 'worried' fallow deer in violation of regulations governing Royal Parks.

    It is understood no animals were hurt, but the MP could still face a fine of £200 if found guilty. 

    Eton-educated Mr Kruger, 46, MP for Devizes in Wiltshire, had been expected to appear at Wimbledon Magistrates' Court in London yesterday, but the case was adjourned until May 24.
