A FOUR-YEAR-OLD boy from Sidmouth has a smile back on his face after he was reunited with his ride-on toy digger which had been stolen.

Last week we reported that Owen Loom was left devastated after the JCB, which had been given to him on his third birthday, was snatched from his back garden in Primley Road.

But only days later, the digger was found dumped in Temple Street.

Owen's grandmother, Annette Brown, said: "He was very tearful when we told him it was stolen. We took him out shopping and he was telling everyone in the supermarket about it. He will be a happy boy again now!
