Family of Pte Conrad Lewis to adopt Afghan mascot dog

When Pte Conrad Lewis was killed in Afghanistan earlier this year, his family felt compelled to honour a wish he had made before he died.

While serving in Helmand province, Pte Lewis befriended a stray dog, Peg, which became a mascot for his company.

He had been hoping to bring the dog back to the UK at the end of his tour of duty.

Tim Muffett reports.
