A KNITTED post box topper feared stolen has turned up - on the bonnet of a police car.

Earlier in June, yarn bomber Rachel Williamson was left disappointed after the colourful hat - featuring 'Dave' the seagull - disappeared from the post box at the top of Queen Street.

Rachel was alerted that ‘Dave’ had been found after being tagged in a photograph on Facebook.

She said: “I cannot tell you how excited I was when I saw the picture on Facebook. An awful lot of work went in to creating him and I honestly never thought I’d see him again.”

Rachel has now made 30 toppers.

“There are two in Prestatyn, one in Dyserth, one in Rhuddlan and one in Bodelwyddan. I’m making them to cheer people up," she added.

“Everytime I passed the post box at the top of Queen Street it made me sad that someone had stolen it.

“I can’t thank North Wales Police enough for finding him.

“He will be back in position as soon as he has had a bath and a bit of work.”

A spokesperson for North Wales Police said: "The knitted postbox topper went missing in early June, but thanks to two eagle-eyed officers Dave the seagull was found in Brighton Road in Rhyl on July 1 and returned to its rightful owner."
