A dog owner has been reunited with his beloved pet who went missing in Bury St Edmunds last week.

Tony Borrer, 77, has been searching for crossbreed Rhen since Wednesday afternoon when she escaped after his partner Mary fell outside Pets at Home on the Moreton Hall estate.

Rhen slipped out of her lead after being taken into Pets at Home and there were numerous sightings of her on the estate but no-one has been able to catch her.
