A lonely pig abandoned in a Kent field for months has been enjoying some regular home comforts after local residents took pity on the porker.
A small community in Shorncliffe, near Folkestone, built a makeshift for the female swine, who they have named Porrick, and donate copious food so she can eat like a pig.
"She's a real local attraction," said Trevor Boxell, whose son owns the land on which Porrick grazes.
The pig had been left alone for four months after the previous owners moved, taking her herd with them, Mr Boxell explained.
Mr Boxell said Porrick is now enjoying a healthy diet of potatoes, sprouts, swede and vegetable peelings from locals and appears very much at home.
