CELEBRITY chef Glynn Purnell, from Chelmsley Wood, has told how his plucky pet dog Whoops sent burglars packing during a break-in at his home.

The Michelin-starred chef, his partner Kerry and their three young children were asleep when hammer-wielding thugs smashed their way into the rural property.

But the burglars got more than they bargained for when Whoops the wonder dog, a seven-year-old Jack Russell, sprang to the family’s defence.

The panicking intruders fled with their tails between their legs after grabbing a couple of toddlers’ bags – which contained nothing but nappies and dummies.
