The perky pup has been praised for helping catch an alleged thief in Lisburn on Tuesday.

Sid and his handler responded to a report of the theft of electronic equipment at Sprucefield Shopping Centre.

The suspect crossed a small river to try to evade capture but Sid also followed through the water and the suspect was arrested and the goods recovered.

A police spokesperson said they arrested a 25-year-old man on suspicion of theft following the incident, who has since been released on police bail pending further enquiries.
