Missing eagle back on its perch

A golden eagle that sparked a police hunt after escaping from its home has been found.

Suffolk Police launched the search at about 10am today after a member of the public reported the bird of prey was missing from its home in Stratford St Mary.

At about 11.50am the force confirmed the six-year-old eagle had been found safe and well about half a mile from its home.

A spokesman said: "He's now safely back on his perch."

The force had earlier reassured the public that the bird had been recently fed but may snack on small animals.
