George W Bush’s daughters, Jenna and Barbara, kept the Secret Service at their feet at all times, claims a new book.

Writer Ronald Kessler alleges in his In the President's Secret Service: Behind the Scenes With Agents in the Line of Fire and the Presidents They Protect that the twins always tried to hoodwink the security.

"Jenna would purposely try to lose her protection by going through red lights or by jumping in her car without telling agents where she was going,” the New York Post quoted Kessler as having written in the book.

“As a result, in a total waste of manpower, the Secret Service kept her car under surveillance so agents could follow her," he added.

Sally McDonough, Laura Bush''s press secretary, on being quizzed if Barbara, Jenna, or Hager had any comment, told the author: "I am making a formal request that you do not include any of this nonsense in your book."
