Police puppies beginning training

The newest recruits to Devon and Cornwall Police - a litter of puppies - have had their first training session.
The force is breeding its own canine cops, and the seven in A-Litter have been learning to track.
The puppies - Ash, Axel, Arry, Argo, Ava, Anya and Annie, who are two-and-a-half months old - will undergo similar sessions every two weeks to determine if they have what it takes to become police dogs.
