DUMMY'S ON RUN.
A SHOP dummy dressed up to celebrate St Patrick's Day was returned to its owner in time for the big day - with a mysterious note attached.
After 'Spud Murphy' went missing from a shop window in Coventry on March 6, owner Tony McGregor, 68, made a desperate appeal to get him back.
He then received an anonymous phone call telling him where the dummy was - but would only be there for 15 minutes.
Tony found Spud with the note which read: "Seeing as you were so upset Tony we only borrowed Spud as a lucky mascot against France so you can now have him back - sorry for the upset."
The note concluded that Spud looked great in his England outfit.
Tony and Spud confirmed they made it to their local Irish pub for the big day.
