A Flatcoated Retriever called Jet on Sunday won the Best in Show award at Britain's Crufts festival, the world's largest annual dog show.

Jet, from Edinburgh, Scotland, earlier won the Best Gundog category before being crowned champion ahead of 21,000 other dogs at the NEC arena in Birmingham, central England.

The nine-year-old's breeder, Jim Irvine said: "We're delighted, absolutely delighted to win this show.

"There's been lots of good dogs here over the last four days, but he has a very happy and outgoing personality, and it shows in the ring."

The show, which is organised by The Kennel Club, celebrates its 120th anniversary this year.
