A grey squirrel
"It's over there!"

A super-sleuth squirrel lent a paw to police on Thursday, when he helped them find stolen gear dumped by a burglar.

The police were called to a break-in at a garage in Twerton, Bath, where they arrested a man suspected of burglary.

When they came back to try and find the stolen loot, they were met by a friendly grey squirrel standing in front of the garage.

Squirrels will do anything for nuts!

The police were shocked when the little fluff-ball appeared to want them to follow him for about 100 metres.

So they did.

It kept stopping to check the coppers were still behind him until he reached a tree and scampered up it.

There at the foot of the tree, to their amazement, the police found the stolen goods.

And what did PC Grey Squirrel get as a reward? Nuts, of course!
