An emu found wandering up a farm driveway near Newmarket as been reunited with his owner after an RSPCA appeal.

The large bird, which was nicknamed Eric by RSPCA officers, turned out to be Monty, owned by Anne-Marie Kirby who lives nearby to where he was found.

He was discovered by a member of the public in The Street in Kirtling on Saturday and was kept in their stable overnight.

It is thought something spooked Monty which caused him to escape.

He is now back home with his fellow Emu and girlfriend Mathilda, who had been pining for him.
