A three-legged fox who went missing from a tourist attraction in Shropshire has been tracked down and recaptured.

Thor, a four-year-old platinum fox, escaped from Hoo Farm Animal Kingdom, near Telford, on Saturday.

The animal is believed to have escaped after a small branch fell on to his enclosure fence.

He was traced to a wood and on Tuesday night was caught in a trap left out for him. The wildlife centre said he seemed "very relieved to be back home".
