A dog has travelled more than 250 miles across the English Channel to be with his new owners.
Three-month-old Digby, a Labradoodle cross from Battersea Dogs and Cats Home in Old Windsor, took an eight-hour ferry and car ride to his new home in Jersey with owners Anne and John Le Bihan.
The retired couple registered with the charity over the phone, before making a 16-hour round trip to pick Digby up.
Vicky Snook, Battersea Old Windsor's senior rehomer, said: "Battersea rehomes dogs all over the UK, and it's very exciting to think of Digby going all the way to Jersey.
"Digby was exactly what the Le Bihan family were looking for, and we have around 50 dogs at Battersea Old Windsor all ready to find happy homes."
