A dog has gone missing after being chased off.
Gus, a black labrador, was being taken for a walk in Dersingham on the morning of Thursday August 15, when it was chased off by a dog from the Feathers pub after somebody left one of the gates open.
The dog was being walked by a family friend of owner Steve Booth, while he was on holiday as they were looking to get a dog of their own.
Pub owner John Higginson said his dog was not violent, but was instead very playful which he thinks could've startled Gus.

Mr Higginson said: "Big dogs always get blamed, but if it's a small dog people think it's cute. We're very careful with dogs but unfortunately kids leave gates open and things."
Gus has so far been spotted in Fring and Sedgeford, leading Mr Booth to believe the dog has survived the night.
Mr Booth says Gus can be identified by his large tongue which is usually hanging out of his mouth and potentially a red and cream slip lead, if this has not fallen off.
Gus is microchipped but the chip currently contains the wrong phone number.
Local police and Sandringham's royal protection officers are currently looking for Gus.
Mr Booth said: "It's good to know all these people are all looking for him, hopefully he'll turn up."
Anyone who has any information on Gus's whereabouts should call Mr Booth on 07342 633163.
