A dog show in Cumbria has gone ahead, after one of the categories was scrapped amid health and safety fears.

Scruffs dog show in Keswick had planned to award a prize for the highest frisbee jump, however there were fears canine competitors could be hurt.

In addition, entrants to the biscuit-catching category had to remain seated.

The show, part of the week-long Keswick Festival, also celebrated Keswick having been awarded the Kennel Club's most dog friendly town in the UK.
