The bank has apologised for the mix-up with Monty
A dog in Greater Manchester has been offered a gold credit card with a spending limit of 10,000.

An application form arrived in the post for Monty, a Shih-Tzu, from the Royal Bank of Scotland.

The letter was addressed to the dog at the home of his owner, Raymond Slater, in Stockport.

He was offered a gold credit card and the chance to earn air miles.

A Royal Bank of Scotland spokeswoman said: "We have apologised for any inconvenience caused to Mr Slater.

"We bought the name from a list broker and have no idea why Monty's details were provided.

"His name has now been removed from the database and we are sending a hamper to Mr Slater by way of apology."
