A family say they are "over the moon" after their stolen dog was found nearly 100 miles away from where she was taken.

Harmony, a three-legged Staffordshire bull terrier, was snatched from outside Tesco Metro, in St Albans city centre last Tuesday.

Katie Corley, whose brother is Harmony's owner, issued a desperate appeal on Facebook to find Harmony, who had been tied up outside the shop.

Police launched a hunt to find Harmony and there were reported sightings in St Albans and at Watford Junction station.

Katie confirmed that Harmony was found by officers in Birmingham on Friday.

In a post on Facebook she wrote: "REUNITED - police recovered Harmony from a location today and now my brother has his best friend back. Thank you for all your share and support. Special thanks to dog lost team and the police who we would not of been able to do it without them. Please share on my behalf. We are over the moon."

DogLost Hertfordshire, who helped search for Harmony, said: "We have such good news - she's been found and reunited in Birmingham!!!

"Fantastic support and information behind the scenes meant that the police had information that led them to Birmingham; they seized her this morning and now Colin is reunited with his beautiful girl. Thank you everyone who shared and followed and gave information and to Hertfordshire, British Transport Police and West Midlands Force too!"

It is unknown whether the person who stole Harmony was found by police.
