A delighted owner has been reunited with his two dogs after enlisting the help of pet detectives.

Two brown and white springer spaniels were stolen from Gary Notley’s home in Fairstead on January 3.

The dogs, Larsson and Nell, had been missing for almost two weeks when they were returned home last Thursday.

Mr Notley, 53, got in touch with Wales-based business Stolen and Stray Pet Recovery to help find his pets.

He said: “I employed some pet detectives - I got them involved in the search and they have been liaising with everybody."
