Bindy - the sniffer dog

Border Force officers and faithful sniffer dog, Bindy, were filmed stopping banned food items from entering the UK for BBC1’s Food Inspectors.


Border Force officers together with specially trained detector dogs such as Bindy seek out banned animal products on behalf of the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.


To highlight this vital work that helps prevent dangerous infections reaching the UK food chain, the BBC filmed the work of a group of officers at Gatwick airport last autumn.
