Coco - the Drummond Place Maine Coon missing since 28 April – has been found safe and well.

She was twice spotted on Sunday night, and finally recovered at around 9pm from a doorway near the Dublin Street junction. Somewhat dishevelled and a lot slimmer, Coco was meowing piteously in what sounds like a transparent effort to deflect criticism.

Coco's owner says 'We have no idea where she has been for the last 11 days, but we are just so glad that she has turned up.

'Everyone was so kind in our search, and we are really grateful to them all.'
