Don't stress - guide dogs help students unwind

We all know what a remarkable job guide dogs do for blind and visually-impaired people.

But now, a college in Sussex has found a new use for the dogs - helping staff and students reduce their stress and increase their well-being.

And socialising is good training for the dogs too, helping them cope with unfamiliar situations in their working lives.

Malcolm Shaw spoke to students Natasha Duursma and Toby Bett, Marion Williams of Eastbourne & Pevensey Bay Guide Dog Group, and Jo Monnickendam from Sussex Downs College.
