A dog took a train ride from Newmarket to Cambridge this morning after it boarded without its owner.

It is understood the terrier was taken on board after it was found at Newmarket Station by schoolchildren, with the conductor suggesting it could be looked after in Cambridge when no owner could be found.

It was picked up by the Cambridge City Council dog warden on arrival at Cambridge station and is set to be reunited with its owner.

A council employee, Tom Pickover, Tweeted a picture of the dog, saying: 'This dog got on a train in Newmarket & picked up by our dog warden in Cambridge! Owner located & on way for pick up.'

Staff from Greater Anglia, who run the train service, alerted the dog warden and were able to care for it until they arrived.
