A bus driver has been hailed a hero after rescuing a guide dog from being attacked by a bull terrier on his bus in Huddersfield.

Richard Moon had stopped to let passengers off the bus when the bull terrier mauled the black labrador retriever.

He was presented with a special bravery award on Monday.
