A flatcoated retriever from Edinburgh has scooped two Crufts awards at the annual dog show.

Nine and a half year old Jet took the Best Gundog title, before going on to win Best in Show, beating off opposition from 21,000 other dogs at Birmingham’s NEC as Crufts celebrated its 120th anniversary.

Breeder Jim Irvine, from Queensferry, said: “In the dog world this is the ultimate prize, this is what everyone aspires to and normally I find it’s always someone else who wins this. To have a good dog and to get this far is just unbelievable.”

Jet’s owner, Iain Ross, said: “I am over the moon, I can’t believe it. It’s a lifetime achievement, it’s wonderful.”
