A Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen called Jilly was tonight crowned Best in Show at Crufts. Jilly, owned by Sara and Gavin Robertson from Wallingford in Oxfordshire, beat more than 20,000 dogs over the four-day competition to take the coveted title. The canine was one of seven dogs competing in the arena for Best in Show at the NEC in Birmingham tonight, each having been awarded Best of Breed and then Best in Group in previous rounds.
