Pirate FM has learnt the number of stray dogs in Cornwall has more than doubled in a year.

K9 Crusaders warns Duchy rescue centres likes its kennels near Bissoe are stretched to breaking point.

Worker Sue Smith thinks the economy is not helping.She said: "At one time, when strays came in, they would maybe be with us for a night, a couple of nights, and then owners would come forward to claim their dogs. What's happening at the moment is that strays are being brought in and nobody is claiming them.

"Rescue spaces are very, very limited and we do have a huge number of dogs per head of population, more than anywhere else in the country. Unfortunately, when things go wrong, we don't necessarily have the facility to support these people or the dogs."
