BRITAIN: Willy wins Best in Show at Crufts.

A TIBETAN Terrier named Willy scooped the title of Best in Show at this year's Crufts.

The champion beat six other group winners at the show's final in Birmingham.

Last year an Australian Shepherd dog called Chance won the prestigious crown.

The six-year-old dog, whose full name is Araki Fabulous Willy, is owned by John Shaw and Neil Smith.

Mr Smith, 48, of Gloucestershire, said: "It is unbelievable. This dog has done so well. It is the biggest accolade you could ever wish for.

"We may have to think about retiring him now because there is nothing left for him to do."

More than 143,000 visitors also flocked to the event.
