Labrador to help nine-year-old boy with autism

Lewis Davey, 9, has severe autism and struggles to communicate, which can make him frustrated and disruptive.

He's one of the first to receive a dog from a charity set up last year to help people with learning difficulties.

Arthur, a one-year-old Labrador, and Lewis are currently in training, getting to know each other before a permanent move into the family home in Stafford.
