A furry batch of 12 potential new police recruits has arrived in Surrey.

Tia, a German Shepherd with the Surrey and Sussex Police Dog Section, has had her third litter of puppies.

Six were born naturally and six required the help of a C-section when they were born at Stocton Veterinary Centre.

The nine male and three female puppies have been named by dog training school officers and staff.

They are: Lewis, Laddie, Luke, Luther, Leo, Ludo, Logan, Lincoln, Leon, Lynx, Lexie and Lanie – after the vet who performed the C-section.
