A pet skunk that escaped from a house in Welham Green is now back in his cage after spending the night on the run.

According to Hannah Dee, the animal’s owner, the skunk, named Lucifurr, returned at 3am on Sunday.

Lucifurr went missing around 9pm on Saturday night. Appeals for help finding him were posted on NextDoor and Facebook.

Six hours later he returned home, none the worse for his adventure.

Hannah's mother, Jennie, says the family is still not sure how Lucifurr escaped, and say they are thinking of renaming him Houdini. They say they are going to take more precautions in the future.
