Scientists have created the first cloned dog in Britain after its owner won a competition to have her elderly pet replicated.
Rebecca Smith, 29, from London, put her senior dachshund, Winnie, forward to be cloned in a £60,000 competition organized by South Korean tech firm, Sooam Biotech.
She won, and the cloned puppy, called Mini Winnie, was conceived in a test tube and born in Seoul on 30 March.
The first mammal to be cloned was Dolly the sheep, born in Edinburgh in 1996. Dogs were first cloned in South Korea in 2005, by Sooam Biotech scientist Dr Woo Suk Hwang, but this is the first time a British dog has been reproduced.
