A missing Scots parrot named Jobby has been found hiding inside a Glasgow maternity unit.

The pet bird escaped his home at a ground floor flat in St Helens Gardens, Langside around midnight on Saturday, July 6, leaving his owner Apsi Witana utterly heartbroken.

Apsi immediately launched a desperate appeal online in an effort bring her parrot - who she has had for five years - back home, reports Glasgow Live.

The owner was thrilled to receive a text today, Sunday, July 7, informing her that Jobby was having a nap at the Queen Elizabeth Maternity Unit five miles away from home.

Apsi admits that she "lost hope" but is just delighted to have been reunited with her pet.

She said: "I got a text from someone to say he was in the Queen Elizabeth maternity hospital which is five miles away.

"He was inside the reception up on a high ledge preening and sleeping. I've been told he was playing and eating crisps with the people there.

"I waited for him to come down and gave him seeds before he got inside his travel bag. A staff member and cleaner helped me, I am so grateful to everyone who was there.

"It almost feels like it was all just a bad dream, I couldn't be more relieved and happy as I'd really lost hope and thought I'd never see him again."
