Holby City actress Rosie Marcel has thanked dog lovers in St Albans who rallied to help find a friend’s pet which went missing after being hit by a car at the weekend.
Rosie, who lives in St Albans, said Tilly, a brown and white three year old crossbreed missing since Saturday was found injured, but safe, this morning (Wednesday).
Tilly was taken for a walk through Heartwood Forest in Sandridge at around midday when she suddenly darted away.
Rosie explained: “Tilly saw some horses, and ran out of Heartwood Forest on to Sandridge Road. She got hit by a passing car and kept on running.”
Tilly was found limping early this morning by a woman walking her dog in Jersey Farm - miles from the woodland, near Tesco at the local shopping centre.
