A family from Twyford in Berkshire who thought they had lost their pet labrador were thoroughly surprised when they received a call to say he had caught the train to Reading.

Susan Scorer and her partner Stan Smith were frantically looking for their pet labrador Shadow and expected the worse when he couldn't be found.

But they received a call to say he had caught the London westbound train at Twyford train station, a couple of miles away from their home, and got off at Reading.

The train he was on was heading for Devon.

Susan said: "I would love to thank everyone who helped and reported him at Twyford train station on the train."
