A secondary school in Cheshire has recruited a new member of staff with a difference.

Poynton High School have welcomed a therapy dog to help pupils who are stressed out by exams, social media and the pressure of being a teenager.

Willow is a Labradoodle puppy and has been purchased by one of the school's english teachers.

The school hopes that Willow will benefit staff as well as students and improve the working environment and social dynamic of the school.
