A seven-year-old Lhasa apso has been named best in show at Crufts 2012.

Thousands of dogs and their owners descended on the Birmingham NEC for the intense four-day event where animals were judged on presentation, discipline and agility.

Elizabeth, owned by Margaret Anderson, from Coventry, was named the best of 21,000 entrants.

Ms Anderson said: "I'm sure it hasn't sunk in at all. I'll go home and probably burst our crying."

International Business Times UK presents the best pictures of the competition's last days.

Pictures from the first day can be found here.
