A gamekeeper has thanked locals after his puppies were returned following an appeal on social media.

Gareth Jones was horrified when he discovered on the morning of February 17 that his three puppies were missing from a barn on Huntly Cot Estate.

But after his wife put an appeal on Facebook they were found safe and well and reunited with the family later that day.
