A dog who had strayed onto a busy road has been reunited with his owners.

Halesworth police officers helped reunite the lost spaniel, which had been spotted on the B1123 road at Linstead on bank holiday Monday, with its "delighted owners" after investigations.

In a post on the Halesworth Police Facebook page, it said: "Happy owners reunited.

"On bank holiday Monday, #HalesworthPolice helped locate the owners of this lost spaniel found straying on the B1123 at Linstead.

"The members of the public who found the pet were unable to take him to an animal home, so contacted police for help.
