A dog that was snatched straight off the street in Longfield has been reunited with its grateful owner.

Pippa, a six-year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier, was stolen by a group of five men outside Longfield Kebab House on Station Road in the early hours of the morning of Sunday, December 11.

The men reportedly put her in the back of a 4x4 and drove off, leaving owner Lesley Elliott distraught.

But Pippa was returned to Mrs Elliott yesterday (Thursday, January 12) after a farmer found the dog tied to a post in Farningham.

The farmer called the Sevenoaks dog warden, who checked her microchip and brought her back home late in the afternoon.

Mrs Elliott, who lives on Main Road, said: “Thanks for all your help. I’m sure it was all the publicity and posters that made this happen.”
