A dog from Lancashire has found its own way home after being stolen from a petrol station two miles away.

Chopper, a three-year-old Jack Russell, was inside the cab of a van which was taken from a petrol station in Read at about 07:30 BST.

Owner Debbie Wallbank said the van is still missing but Chopper came running into their yard at about 14:00 BST.

Mrs Wallbank said the dog was unharmed and was rewarded with a treat of meat and potato pie.

"I'm so relieved he's back. I've not let him out of my sight since," she said.

The white Ford transit van that is missing has D&D Wallbank in red letters on the side, has a trailer attached and the registration CH04 OPP.

It was stolen from the Texaco garage on Whalley Road when the owner went inside.

Anyone who sees the van is asked to contact police.
