Merseyside Police is appealing for information following a report of a dog being stolen during a car key burglary in Formby on Saturday, 4 November 2017.

Officers were called to a report that a seven-year-old Springer Spaniel dog called Tilly had been taken from a property on Freshfield Road, Formby, along with a BMW car.

The burglary occurred between around 5.30am and 7.30am.
