The owner of a calf, which escaped from mid Norfolk, is celebrating after being reunited.

The Belted Galloway calf went missing from the Holme Hale area, between Swaffham, Watton, and Dereham this morning (Sunday).

Danielle Glavin, who was Labour’s parliamentary candidate for South Norfolk, took to Twitter to ask for help, on behalf of its owner, and warned people that the calf would be “scared and nervous”.

She also asked for tweeters to share her post in a bid to help reunite the owner with their animal and asked for people to contact the police with information.

The calf was eventually found at around 12.45am today (Sunday) close to nearby woods.
