A police dog left fighting for his left after becoming seriously ill is now 'happy at home'.

Four-year-old officer Kyle spent four hours in surgery on September 25, as vets fought to save his life.

He was suffering with a twisted colon but was said to have made a full recovery on September 28.

Officers say PD Kyle was allowed home for the vets last week, bringing an end to a "tense time for all that know and love" him.

The news came as Nottinghamshire Police released a new picture of him relaxing at home.

Inspector Annie Reavley, of the Nottinghamshire Police dog section, said: "We owe a huge debt of thanks to all of those that were involved in his care at Willows Vets.

"We understood that it was a risky surgery with no guarantees, however the picture shows his fight is as strong as those that worked on him.

"He has started to put weight on now and he has adjusted his taste buds to the food that has been recommended.

"Kyle's a super police dog and it's so lovely to see him slowly grow in strength and character."
