A POLICE hound and his handler have shown they are top dogs in the force.

PC Mark Atkinson and German Shepherd Storm scooped the National Obedience trophy at the National Police Dog Trials on Sunday.

The pair from Beds and Herts Dog Unit beat 22 other dogs by searching woodland for stolen items and criminals.

Mr Atkinson said Storm – who has his own Facebook page – always does as he is asked first time with a wagging tail.
