Restrictions on people taking their dogs to the Eden Project have been lifted this weekend for the first time. Until now, only registered assistance pets have been permitted. But animals won't be allowed in any building apart from through the Visitor Centre.

Eden's Operations Director Ian Williams said: "Lots of visitors have asked us if we would consider letting dogs in. We will see how Dog Weekend at Eden goes and how well it is received by dog owners and general visitors and will then make a call on whether we have more dog days in future."
