A two-year-old boy will soon be reunited with his favourite toy lamb after it was found by a man at the Royal Norfolk Show.
Mel Haynes, from Newton Flotman, launched an appeal on Wednesday night to find the cuddly toy called Lamby after her two-year-old son Owen realised he had lost it when they were heading back to the car after a day at the Royal Norfolk Show.
Hundreds of people shared the appeal on social media and Lamby was soon found on the front of a tractor at the Norfolk Showground.
Debbie Ashford, Owen's grandmother said in a Facebook post: 'I am very happy to report on behalf of my daughter that Lamby has been found safe and well by a lovely lady in Seething who rescued him from the front of a tractor. He will be reunited with his best friend Owen very soon.
'We would like to say thank you to everyone who helped us to look for him and all your very kind shares and comments. We have one happy and relieved little boy.'

'Owen has already started to try and feed him chocolate so he will be back to his grubby self soon.'
Lamby was given to Owen as a gift from family friends in New Zealand and Mrs Haynes said she is still having people messaging her about sending a replacement.
'People from New Zealand are still sending me messages, offering to send a new lamb over for Owen,' she said. 'The response really has been overwhelming.'
