An 11-year-old girl's wheelchair which was stolen during a Cambridgeshire youth club's outing to Southend has been recovered by Essex Police.

Cerys Hennighan's custom-built chair was taken from a coach luggage hold on Southchurch Avenue, on Sunday, while she was at a leisure centre.

Cerys, who has musculo-skeletal problems, was part of a 30-strong group who had travelled from Bassingbourn.

Police said a dog walker had found the wheelchair abandoned in Garon Park.
