North London charity All Dogs Matter has held its first show since lockdown began, seeing families and their canine companions enjoy a day out in the sun.

The Highgate Wood show last Sunday (September 12) brought together around 200 people and 100 dogs, raising £1,500 for the charity.

All Dogs Matter founder Ira Moss said the event was "really great".

She added: "It was a great atmosphere, I'm really pleased with how it went and everyone was happy to be there."

Around 40 rescue dogs the charity had rehomed entered the Best Rescue category, and Ira said it was great to see them again.
