  Dog makes home on motorway
Updated 22 December 2001, 16.30

A motorway in Belgium has had to be closed down while police search for a dog which has set up home there!

Lea the border collie ran off from her owner two months ago after getting an electric shock from a wire.

Bush baby


She's since been seen living in bushes in the central reservation - that's right in the middle of the motorway.

Her owner Bernadette Palmentier has called for her but police think the noise of the traffic is confusing Lea.

Bernadette says she's amazed Lea's still alive: "She's used to having her food served on a plate. I don't know how she can survive."

But she added: "I won't give up, I want her back home."
