Welsh council staff 'should check pets for microchips'

Animal lovers hope to make it mandatory for pets found by council workers to be checked for microchips so they can be returned to their owners.

Rebecca Baker, assistant manager at Dogs Trust Bridgend, urged anyone who found an animal to take it to a centre to get it scanned so families can get "peace of mind".
