Our four-legged friends who help the RAF across the world are set to compete at RAF Honington.

The Suffolk base, near Thetford, is home to the RAF Force Protection Force which will be hosting the annual RAF Police Military Working Dogs event on Thursday, September 12.

Patrol dogs and their handlers from across the UK and Cyprus will compete against each other to become the 2019 RAF Military Working Dogs Trials Champion, a prestigious award of becoming best in trade.

Four teams will be put through their paces in three different disciplines - wind scent exercises, obedience and obstacles with criminal workouts.

There will also be a capability demonstration from Number 1 (Tactical) Police Squadron and a display from the RAF Police Dog Demonstration Team.
