More than 50 people came together in Felbrigg to help search for Fergus, the missing Schnuazer/miniature poodle cross.

Owners, Sophie Melton and Milo Creasey, lost Fergus after he was spooked by a larger dog on his regular walk at the park at Felbrigg Hall.

Miss Melton said: "We've had strangers up here all day saying they are here to help find Fergus.

"We were so touched, it really is amazing how many people have come together and proved what an amazing tool social media is when it's used for good."
