A dog has died from eating an electronic cigarette - thought to be the first case of its kind in Cumbria.
E-cigarettes contain nicotine which can be fatal to animals.
The dog died after it chewed on a refill cartridge for an e-cigarette in the Dalston area of Carlisle.
The vet who treated the animal is urging people to be more careful, and is calling for clearer warnings on packets.
