Emma Bunton, who made an emotional plea for the safe return of her "beloved" dog, has tweeted that her pet has been found but it is "terrible news."

The former Spice Girl had offered a reward to anyone that found her chocolate brown Labrador Phoebe.

But Bunton later tweeted:

Phoebe, described as a "gentle" dog who was microchipped, went missing on Monday during a walk on Hadley Wood Common in north London.

Bunton had appealed to her Twitter followers for help in finding her pet and said she was "in bits" after the dog's disappearance.

The singer and Heart FM Breakfast Show presenter teamed up with DogLost, a free service which aims to help reunite missing dogs with their owners.
