Dog that escaped from A34 fatal crash found safe and well

A DOG that escaped a car which was caught up in the fatal crash on the A34 on Wednesday has been found safe and well.

Honey the Labrador had not been seen since the crash at 5.10pm on August 11, in which four people died and 12 were injured.

Following Honey's disappearance, an appeal was published on Facebook urging people to keep an eye out for her which was 'shared' hundreds of times.

And yesterday afternoon, she was found safe and subsequently taken in by Newbury police.

Thanking those who helped to find the dog, an anonymous post on Facebook said: "Thank you so much to everyone that has been out looking for Honey! She has been found, she's a bit shaken but is ok!

"Please thank everyone that has been out looking and everyone who has shared this post, as the power of Facebook has found her!

"An incredible woman has found her and contacted the police who helped catch her! We are completely overwhelmed, and you have all given us something no words can explain X"
