But officers in one town have found themselves chasing a rather different line of enquiry from their usual crime investigations after rescuing a missing dog.

Officers took the hound to Old Golfhouse Vets in Watton after finding the animal in the town on Thursday, February 15.

Afterwards they took to Twitter in a bid to locate the owner, saying: 'Is this your dog?
