Frightened police dog is retired
A police dog that is scared of children and too timid to bite has been retired from Northumbria Police's dog training section.
The force stopped trying to train Vegas when it became clear she was too "hesitant and tentative".

It is now trying to find her a new owner, as BBC Look North's Adrian Pitches reports.
