Officials at a Norfolk dog rehoming centre were left mystified after a large road sign was stolen from the side of the A11.

Staff at the Dogs Trust home at Snetterton fear visitors will not be able to find their countryside kennels after the disappearance of the sign from the Thetford-bound carriageway.

The green and white Dogs Trust Rehoming Centre A11 sign, near the Shropham and Quidenham turn-off, went missing about a month ago, but has only recently been confirmed as stolen.

Diane McLelland-Taylor, Snetterton rehoming manager, said: "We thought that the council or Highways Agency had temporarily taken it down, along with some other signs that had gone missing.

"There are some suggestions that they may have been stolen for their scrap metal value, but we really can't believe that people would stoop this low. We are very concerned, as we have a number of people who want to visit our centre to help rehome our dogs, who may now struggle to find us."

The Highways Agency is looking to replace the sign and officials are keen to stress that the Snetterton rehoming centre is still signposted from the end of the Shropham and Quidenham slip road.
