Dogs Trust says number of strays 'highest in 11 years'

More than 120,000 stray dogs were picked up by local authorities in the last 12 months, the highest number in 11 years.

New figures from the Dogs Trust suggest that on average 345 stray dogs are picked up every day.

But more than one in 20, a total of 7,571 dogs, were put down as they were unable to be rehomed.
