Yorkshire police officers have reunited a stolen pregnant dog with her owners 150 miles away in Northampton.

Cressy has been reunited with her owners in Northampton.

Cressy the spaniel was recovered, along with two other dogs - a puppy lurcher and a seven-year-old Chihuahua - after officers from Humberside Police arrested a man in connection with theft and stolen vehicles in East Yorkshire.

All of the dogs were scanned for microchips, and Cressy was found to have been stolen in January from an address in Northampton.
