A simple act of kindness but a Fenland police officer has re-united a lost dog with its owner.
And attracted 1,000 approving ‘likes’ when the officer shared the story with Policing Fenland Facebook readers.
The officer said he encountered the dog, Molly, after members of the public were seen trying to stop it from running in front of cars in Whittlesey.
He picked up the dog, drove to Best Friends vet in March to have it scanned for a microchip.
“Just like that, we knew where to go next,” said the officer as they headed back to Whittlesey. .
