A kind couple took pity on a dog that was shivering in the rain, tied to a lamppost outside Marks & Spencer in Dover as its owner shopped.

The man took off his jacket and held it over the dog like an umbrella, while his girlfriend helped him use it to shelter the Alsatian.

They stayed there for 20 minutes in the rain, waiting for the dog's owner, and were spotted by a man who worked at Gala Bingo, which is situated across the road.

He took pity on them, as by that time they looked cold, and gave them two umbrellas so they could all stay dry.

Gala Bingo Dover wrote on Facebook: "These two kind hearted individuals are selflessly helping a stranger's dog stay dry in the sudden downpour of torrential rain earlier today. It really is quite heart warming to see acts of kindness like this. It made us want to help too."

The owner eventually finished their shop, and said that they didn't realise how much it had been raining.
