A BOMB detection dog, who died in Afghanistan alongside his handler, was honoured with a top award on Wednesday last week.

Springer spaniel cross Theo won the hero dog award at the Dogs Trust Honours, which were held in association with The Sun.

He was nominated for the award by L/Cpl Liam Tasker’s mother Jane Duffy, who was there to receive the trophy.

Theo died of a seizure on the same day as L/Cpl Tasker, from St George’s Barracks in North Luffenham, was killed while on foot patrol.
