A LOST homing pigeon has found a new home in Rugeley after “refusing” to return to Yorkshire.

Staff at the town’s Donnachie and Townley vets found the bird on their doorstep.

They found the owner, who confirmed the lost bird’s true home was in Halifax.

The owner gave instructions about when to release the bird, christened Tango, but the next morning he was on their doorstep again – and now lives with one of the surgery’s neighbours.

Head veterinary nurse Jo Waldron said: “We released Tango twice and both times he came back. What can we say – obviously he prefers Rugeley to Halifax.”
