Nose jobs and facelifts were once the preserve of Hollywood A-listers and ageing celebrities. However new figures show that Britons are spending millions of pounds a year on plastic surgery for their pets.

Petplan also paid out over £1m for eye-lid lifts on young dogs and almost a quarter of a million pounds for dental work on household pets.

Local authorities should meet part of the cost of using expert witnesses in child protection cases, the Confederation of Independent Social Work Agencies (Ciswa) has stated. Ciswa directors Richard Jack, Philip King and Mark Willis said in an open letter, It has made the proposal because some solicitors “are inclined to avoid using experts who charge above the prescribed rates even where such experts offer a pricing model which is compliant with the rates,” They added: “Worryingly, these solicitors appear tempted to use low fee practitioners who are unlikely to have the requisite expertise to provide the necessary expert opinion in a case. This will expose children to unnecessary risk and [Ciswa] urges solicitors to stand firm in protecting the family justice system.”
