How British troops have helped Afghan dogs

As British forces leave Afghanistan, the BBC has been reporting on the journey of one father, Tony Lewis, whose son was killed in action in Helmand in 2011.

Before his death, Private Conrad Lewis asked his father to help him bring a stray Afghan dog that he had adopted back to the UK.

After Conrad died, Tony Lewis was determined to fulfil his son's wish, as Fergal Keane reports.
