Off-duty postie Ian leads search for missing dog
1:00pm Friday 7th March 2014 in News
A postman has been praised for his community spirit for returning to his round after his shift had ended to find a missing dog.
Ian Palmer, 29, was delivering post in Tye Green last Friday afternoon when he spotted anxious Braintree Road resident Sally Hayes-Smith.
Sally had been flagging down passing cars for help after her 11-month-old Yorkshire terrier Annie escaped from home.
After completing his shift, Braintree-based postman Ian searched nearby fields for Annie until she was eventually found and safely returned four hours later.
