Signs warn dog owners of killer disease in the New Forest

Dog owners are being warned about a disease that has killed 13 dogs across the UK in recent months.

The illness, thought to be a condition called Alabama Rot, causes kidney failure.

The highest number of cases have been in the New Forest, where signs have been put up by the Forestry Commission warning owners about the outbreak.
