A woman who says she spent almost ten years confined to her bed has been speaking about how her life was "transformed" by a dog.
Sue Sherlock, from Sussex, says she owes her new lease on life to Lancelot - her golden retriever. He has been trained to help her dress, take out her laundry, and even pay for her shopping.
Now 'Canine Partners' , the charity that provided Lancelot, says more dogs are needed to help others in similar situations. Andy Dickenson reports.
