BuzzFeed News has been shown an email that was sent around to all MPs today about the dining room fryers being broken and apologising that "some... favourites (such as chips) could not be provided".

The email suggests that a "work-around strategy" is being developed so there'll be a "full menu" by lunchtime tomorrow.

The email suggests that a "work-around strategy" is being developed so there'll be a "full menu" by lunchtime tomorrow.
