A dog in a "terrible state" has been found wandering along the A47 near King's Lynn.

Molly, a Shi Tzu-type dog, was found on a flyover near the Adrian Flux arena and was taken to a local vet by a passer-by who spotted her.

The vet found that Molly had severe dental disease and a large mango-sized tumour hanging from her stomach. 

Molly also had matted fur and weighed only 6.8kg when she was found on Sunday, February 27.

The dog has since been cared for by team at RSPCA Block Fen Animal Centre and is recovering well after undergoing surgery to remove the tumour.
