The Rhea which went missing near Worksop, on Tuesday has been safely found.

Nottinghamshire Police were called to Hodsock Priory Farm in Worksop Road last night and at around 1.55pm the bird was safely manoeuvred into a trailer to be transported back to Carlton-in-Lindrick.

It appears the bird has been attracted by the snowdrops at Hodsock. Thankfully, it seems to be no worse off for its adventures.

“We would like to thank the public for their help and support in rallying round to help us locate the bird and reunite it safely with its owner."

– Insp Alan Easdon

Officers would also like to thank South Yorkshire Police for its help during the search.
