Off to a flyer!

A knight of the road drove 200 miles to reunite a lost pigeon with its owner.

Colin Sheerin, 59, of Boldon, South Tyneside, was thrilled to get his beloved pigeon back after it didn't return from a race in the Midlands.

The bird was blown off course and ended up in the back garden of an RAC controller in Staffordshire, who asked driver Darren Alderson to drop it off on a visit back to his family in County Durham.

Mr Alderson, 32, said: "I was happy to bring the pigeon back. It was a bit of company for me on the journey home."

Mr Sheerin, a retired seaman and builder, said: "It was amazing of the RAC to go to such lengths to get it home."
