Bravery award for Geo the dog

A family dog who saved a boy from Clacton from serious injury is to get a bravery award.

Geo's owner Carly Riley said he pushed her 10-year-old son Charlie out of the way of a truck - but the German Shepherd suffered horrific injuries.

Thankfully this story does have a happy ending: Geo's now made a full recovery and is back at home.
