A Ukrainian family has been reunited with their pet Pomeranian, two months after a rabies vaccine error saw him put into quarantine when they fled from the war.

The family ended up in North Shields after making their way to Amsterdam via Poland, before sailing here.

"He is a bit nervous, he has been in real isolation for two months."
