UK Dog Surfing Championships take place on south coast

Dozens of canines and their owners took part in the UK Dog Surfing Championships on the south coast of England.

In only the second event of its kind, the contest saw pooches ride surfboards around a course, propelled by their human companions' paddling.

First prize in the event, organised by a local surf shop, went to a dog called 'Bear', who also won the competition in 2018.

The contest took place in Branksome, Poole, near Bournemouth, on Sunday 21 July.
