Irn Bru sales increase in Westminster following 2015 election
Sales of Irn Bru in the UK Parliament have increased 60% in the last year, according to new figures.
The spike comes after the SNP upped its number of seats from six to 56 in the 2015 general election.
Numbers obtained by the Press Association show 8,708 cans or bottles of the fizzy drink were sold in the financial year 2015-2016.
It marks an increase from the 5,452 units sold in Westminster bars, cafes and vending machines the previous year.
MPs and other parliamentary staff are expected to drink another 8,493 cans or bottles by the end of the financial year in April 2017.
