Dog Shaggy dog tale still attracts crowds to pat parkís pooch

It may have proved to be a shaggy dog tale, but a carved canine is still attracting interest from far and wide.

Last summer, film crews arrived in Todmorden after hearing rumours about a lucky dog statue in Centre Vale Park.

Psychological illusionist Derren Brown visited the town to film a show for his TV series before later revealing that he had planted the rumour as part of an experiment about luck.
