AN ILKESTON schoolgirl and Rally, a four-year-old Border Collie, have won a top prize at Crufts.

Saint John Houghton pupil Charlotte Wolverson, 16, and Rally scooped the prestigious Young Kennel Club Elementary Obedience Award.

Charlotte said: “I trained him myself so I was over-the-moon to win the award. I was really enjoyed it and it shows all the time I spent training Rally has been worth it.”

Rally was among 21,500 healthy, happy dogs at dfs Crufts.
