For one dog, they now have a Christmas worth looking forward to after being found in a Cambridgeshire village. 

Officers from Cambridgeshire Police’s Rural Crime Action Team found the stolen spaniel, named Peregrine, in Willingham today (Monday).

A spokesperson for Cambridgeshire Police said: “What’s better than getting your stolen dog back? Getting it back for Christmas!” 

As well as the pre-Christmas miracle of finding the stolen spaniel, many took to social media to congratulate them on their find.
