A beloved German Shepherd who was stolen from a business in Colney Street on Sunday (30) has been found.

Bear, a security dog at a business in Moor Mill Lane, was taken after a vehicle was used to remove part of the property’s perimeter fence where Bear was inside.

Yesterday (7) he was handed into Hatfield Police station after being found on a road by members of the public.

It is believed they recognised the dog from social media and online news stories.

Bear has since been reunited with his owner and has been taken to a vet for a check over.
