Dog owner Kyle Bridon put a warning post on Facebook last week after spotting a 'suspicious' van driver taking photos of his dog, Skye, in County Durham.

Mr Bridon warned other pet owners online to 'be careful', writing: 'I took a photo of the van which I will post now so anyone with dogs be careful.'

But the following day Jack Bainbridge spotted the post circulating on social media and realised the van belonged to his father, 57-year-old plasterer Brian Bainbridge.

He revealed his father had taken the photo because 'he couldn't get over how fat the dog was,' adding, 'He's a plasterer not a dog pincher and if he was to go pinch a dog it wouldn't be that fat lump.'
