Two workmen in Weymouth got a bit of a surprise when they were confronted by a police dog and his handler.

The pair had climbed over a wall to get to a property they were working on in Dorchester Road.

But they were spotted by a member of the public, who thought they were burglars and called the police.

A spokesman for Weymouth and Portland Police said:

"The call was made with good intent and two workmen were located on site finishing up some work on their day off.

"It's fair to say the workmen were 'surprised' to see Blade checking out the site!

"Remember to always call 999 if you need to report a crime that is in progress or if someone is in immediate danger. It's always better for us to check it out."
