Prize winners meet police pups

Five lucky people are being given the chance to visit the police dogs department in Cumbria, after winning a Christmas competition.

More than 200 people entered the competition, which was held on Twitter, between Christmas and New Year.

The winners will be meeting some of the police dogs, including some puppies, who will show off their new skills.

"This is a great opportunity to show people how we work and give them a chance to meet the dogs who work very hard in helping us protect the people of Cumbria.

"They will have their picture taken with some of the dogs and enjoy demonstrations, not only by our newest recruits, who are no longer puppies, but also some of our more experienced dogs.

"We hope it will be any enjoyable day for all of the winners."
