Postmen often have trouble with dogs but one decided to put that aside when he saw a lost lurcher wandering the streets.

A postman on deliveries in Bury Road, Bradfield St George, yesterday found this pale grey lurcher wandering alone and went knocking on doors to try to deliver it to its owners.

When that failed he took it back to Royal Mail’s Bury St Edmunds sorting office, where it was fed and watered and named Bob while they waited for the dog warden to come.

Bob is now in the care of St Edmundsbury Borough Council’s kennels and will be put up for rehoming if his owners do not claim him within seven days. His owners should call the council’s environmental health department on 01284 757053.
