A GERMAN lorry driver has been given a formal caution today for contravening British rabies laws after a puppy was found in the cab of his vehicle at the Port of Felixstowe.

Suffolk Trading Standards this morning withdrew the prosecution against the man from Dresden after he agreed to the caution.

The five-month-old puppy has been put into isolation and will later be re-exported at a cost to the lorry driver or put down if he does not pay.
