Coronation Street's guide dog Mr Quinn is retiring after six years.

The talented pooch - whose first scenes were alongside Chris Gascoyne - worked with blind extra Annie Giles-Quinn, but he will no longer be pawing along the cobbles as she now has a new "Corrie" canine, Miss Sally.

A tweet on the official "Coronation Street" Twitter account read: "Let's all "paws" to bid farewell to Coronation Street's resident guide dog, Mr Quinn who is retiring today after 6 years as an extra on the cobbles. (sic)"

Black labrador Mr Quinn is a legend on the Manchester-based set and is even able to turn his paws to live acting - having appeared in the opening scene of the soap's last live episode.

Bill Roache - who plays Ken Barlow on the soap - is a huge admirer of the four-legged friend.

Several "Corrie" fans took to Twitter to Mr Quinn for his "outstanding service".
