Luigi the beagle wins PDSA's Slimmer of the Year competition

Luigi the beagle has won this year's Slimmer of the Year competition, run by vet charity PDSA.

The former bulging Beagle – with a taste for Sunday roasts – has been crowned pet slimmer of the year after shedding a third (30%) of his body weight and 14 inches in just six months.

Luigi beat off 5 other hopefuls who lost a combined total of 37kg.

PDSA hope his efforts will highlight the problem of pet obesity.
