Should pet micro pigs be banned

It's not just the clothes that bring customers into this shop in Ramsbottom - Patrick the micro pig has also been drawing them in!

Owner Lee has been bringing his pet Patrick to work with him in the shop everyday and the customers love to see him there.

But council bosses are trying to stop Lee from taking Patrick to work with him. They say that pigs are farm animals and can spread illnesses. So like farm pigs, micro pigs should not travel around every day.

Lee has started a campaign to change the law so he can keep bringing Patrick in the shop with him. Sonali's got the story.
