      I would have thought getting dogs to sniff Middlesborough fans is something the RSPCA should be taking a long hard look at.

      All the search found was his phone, match ticket, a chocolate bar - and his insulin pen.
      No money then... so I can only conclude this must be a true story.

      OK, I'll do it.
      Flask search.
      Night night.
      EDIT
      I've just read this bit-
      Leeds’ safety officer Sue Watson explained that “pyro dogs” - dogs to sniff out pyrotechnics - are used by Leeds at home and away turnstiles but at the previous home game against Preston, someone detonated a smoke bomb in the away end. Staff at the Boro match were therefore briefed to stop and search anyone activating a pyro dog. If they produced the pyro, they’d be allowed in - if they didn’t, they wouldn’t.
      So, if you've got a 'pyro' and give it up you can enter the ground. BUT if you Haven't got a 'pyro' so you cant give it up you're banned!

      Just shows how stupid Leeds are, clearly in the wrong and as compensation offer 2 tickets to a game at Elland Road.

      If that had happened on one of our visits who would take Leeds up on such a generous offer?

      Given that the dog was worse than useless in his duties has he been sacked, moved to other duties or undergoing further training

      There's a video in the article showing the dog. There are hundreds of fans queuing so it's sense of smell must have been very confused. You'd need a lot more than one dog for a task like that.
      Even the senior stewards at Leeds said it was wrong.

      Then to offer a home ticket to a Boro fan as compensation, is adding insult to injury.

      The dog has taken a well earned break and is unavailable for comment but stewards are being blamed for the mix up.

      I've heard he is going on the punditry circuit until a position opens up at another club, chuffing sniffer dog merry go round.

      Sniffer dogs at Anfield were having a right old bark up at one of the agency stewards much to the handler’s annoyance. Maybe he’d pre-rolled a joint for his break.
