Comedian Chris Ramsey became a hound hero after discovering a lost dog in South Shields.
The Hebburn star and stand-up comic took to Twitter to reunite the pooch with his owner after finding him in Sunderland Road, South Shields.
Ramsey lead the dog, called Alfie, round the town on a piece of string hunting for his owner, while taking to Twitter to use his 355,000 followers to help in the hunt.
He told followers: “Been walking around South Shields with a dog on a piece of string for a while... Starting to look crazy.”
But it wasn’t long before one tweeter recognised Alfie and sent Ramsey the details.
The comedian later posted a picture of himself with Alfie and his owner reunited.
