A dog from Rushden came second in an event at the prestigious Crufts dog show.

Flora, a six-year-old Chinese Crested Powderpuff, and her owner Donna Lewis, a primary school teacher from Rushden, were awarded second place for their Small Agility Team round.

The team were whipped away to be interviewed by TV personality and ‘supervet’ Noel Fitzpatrick, who asked Donna about her fitness programme for her dog.

He then became an honorary member of the agility team and stood on the winners podium with them.
