A MOTHER and son team are working around the clock to raise four bulldog puppies after their mother Georgie died giving birth.

Gail and Jay Brockett, of Hoo Lane, Offley, are spending day and night bottle feeding and caring for their puppies, which were part of a litter of seven born just over two weeks ago.

Three have since died after catching pneumonia and the Brocketts are doing their best to look after the remaining four dogs.

Mr Brockett, 23, said: "We're spending 24 hours a day making sure they get through their first few weeks. It's hard work but it's definitely worth it.
