A BLACK labrador is believed to have been stolen in North Yorkshire.

The four-year-old female was last seen at 4pm last Wednesday (March 5) in her owner's field in Hemingbrough, say North Yorkshire Police.

Officers say the dog is not thought likely to have wandered off, "due to it being inseparable from its puppy that was with it at the time".

Anyone with information is asked to phone 101, quoting reference NYP-07032014-0350.
