Tease, the Whippet, with owner Yvette Short after she was named Supreme Champion at Crufts 2018 at the NEC in Birmingham tonight. Here's the lowdown on what went down during the awards ceremony on Sunday night.

An intruder at the Crufts dog show was wrestled to the ground as the competition victor was being announced live on television.

Crufts have recently stated that they're clamping down on congenital health problems, but clearly PETA remains unsatisfied, as to an extent do other organisations.

He was wrestled to the ground by the dog show's staff and taken away from the arena. They were both quickly apprehended and forcibly removed by security.

Yvette was then seen pulling her two-year-old champion protectively towards her as guards bundled over a protester in the background of the shot.

Applause broke out as the intruders were removed from the arena floor.

The intruder who was a PETA protestor hid between Chelsea Pensioners in the audience before raiding the stage.

"Our main priority at the moment is the wellbeing of the dogs that were in the ring, who are being looked after by their owners and show officials.

The NEC Group have extensive security procedures in place at Crufts and we, along with the NEC Group, will be reviewing what happened as a matter of urgency".

PETA has claimed responsibility for the demonstration, calling for an end to "extreme breeding".

In the footage, which was partly captured and aired on Channel 4's live Crufts broadcast, a male protestor holding a placard that read "Crufts canine eugenics", ran into the arena.

In a press statement PETA claimed that the activists were in fact members of Vegan Strike Group, but the protest had been organised by PETA.
