A MISCHIEVOUS spaniel spotted running loose near the A40 at Oxford had to be rounded up by police.

The young stray King Charles was seen at Thame last night.

Police Community Support Offices from Thame rounded him up then warmed him up in their squad car while they waited for a dog warden to come and collect him.

Within a few hours he was with the warden and on his way to food, water and warmth.

The South and Vale team tweeted late last night: "We love a happy ending."
