From making friends with traders in Romford Market and dressing up for family fun days, to helping his owner campaign for changes to the Dangerous Dogs Act and a clampdown on “irresponsible” dog owners, Buster has been there every step of the way.

He also played his part in campaigning during past elections, attracting voters to speak to Conservative candidates while they handed out leaflets in the town centre.

Mr Rosindell took to Facebook to confirm the sad news.

He said: “R.I.P. my faithful friend Buster (2002-2017) who has left me today after thirteen years of being loyally by my side. “Thank you my wonderful companion - you will be missed, but always remembered.

“You really did live up to your name of “Romford’s Top Dog”.
