Wimbledon's stolen hawk returned safely

The hawk used to scare pigeons from Wimbledon has been found, three days after he was stolen from a car in south-west London.

He went missing from on Thursday night and a member of the public claimed to have spotted his abandoned box on Friday morning.

He was then taken to the RSPCA where he was cared for until he was returned to his handler Imogen Davis.

She told BBC Breakfast she was ecstatic he had been returned safely.
