Police have released heartbreaking pictures of six dogs seized over fears of neglect at an address in Desborough.

Officers from Northamptonshire Police discovered the three adult dogs — two terriers and a Chihuahua — and three puppies during an unrelated enquiry.

They quickly consulted with RSPCA inspectors before taking the dogs away on welfare grounds.
