Crufts, Britain's most prestigious and famous dog show, has just drawn to a close with over 20,000 dogs descending on Birmingham's National Exhibition Centre for the four-day competition.

The coveted Best in Show title was won by Basset Griffon Vendeen Jill (above), whose handler Gavin Robertson described the triumph as a "wonderful, wonderful feeling", and a boyhood dream come true.

Reserve Best in Show went to a three-year-old Labrador Retriever Romeo, who won the Gundog category and travelled from Cesara in Italy for the competition.
