Researchers at the University of Lincoln have trained tortoises to use touchscreens as part of a study to test the animals' intelligence.
The reptiles were given a choice of shapes on a screen and managed to work out how to win a strawberry by pressing a blue circle on screen. Watch them in action:
Researcher Dr Anna Wilkinson explains why the tortoises are willing to perform:
Tortoises have been the subject of a study led by a University of Lincoln academic.
The reptiles were monitored to test their navigational skills and managed to work out how to win a strawberry by pressing the screen.
A red triangle on the screen was followed by two blue circles. The tortoises were trained to press either the left or right circle to get a strawberry.
Dr Anna Wilkinson found that when food was given to the tortoises in two blue bowls, similar to the circles, the tortoises went for the food on the same side as the circle they were trained to press.
An exhibition to commemorate the role Calderdale played during World War One has opened in Halifax today. Over fifty families from across the local area have contributed wartime stories and objects from their ancestors to make up the 'For King and Country' exhibition at Bankfield Museum.
Some of the items on display have been put forward by the family of Arthur Smith from Halifax, who fought in the war as a Gunner in the Royal Artillery. We spoke to his grandson, Richard.
Yorkshire Day has been celebrated throughout the county, with the local people, cuisine and language being brought to the fore.
But a group of historians has set out to prove that the way we talk has not always been how we recognise it today.
Michael Billington reports:
A pensioner has been ticked off by police after being caught driving down the hard shoulder of the M1 on his mobility scooter.
The unnamed 85-year-old was spotted edging down the motorway between junctions near Sheffield. Traffic slowed down as motorists came across scene.
Police think he joined the M1 at junction 31 but was turned around by an officer.
South Yorkshire Police said the force received a number of calls about the pensioner's trip down the hard shoulder, adding his family had since been contacted:
To mark Yorkshire Day, residents upheld the tradition of reading the Declaration of Integrity - four times.
Judith Anderson Preston, President of the Yorkshire Riding Society, read it out in Latin at one of the gates of York's walls.
Listen to it here in full:
The Yorkshire Ridings Society led their annual walk around York's walls with the county's flag today.
The Yorkshire Declaration of Integrity was read out at the four gates.
The time for the first reading, 11.39am, coincides with the number of years since the first written reference to the Ridings of York in the Anglo Saxon Chronicles.
The ceremonial party has now moved to St Helen’s Square for an afternoon of entertainment.

Just a few weeks ago we were all marvelling at the opening ceremony of the Grand Depart of the Tour de France at the arena in Leeds - which kicked off one of the most spectacular weekends for Yorkshire.
Now the man in charge of putting on that show has got a new job. Martin Green has been appointed as Chief Executive of Hull City's of Culture 2017. He has been chatting to Duncan Wood.
Exactly fifty years ago tomorrow, Freddie Davies shot to national fame after appearing on Opportunity Knocks and he introduced his comic creation Samuel Tweet to audiences across the country.
His career took him from the working men's clubs of the north, onto the stage and then the big screen - all courtesy of a routine with a parrot and a hat.
Freddie - or Parrot Face as he is better known to many - has marked his five decades in show business by penning his biography.
He has been chatting to Duncan and Christine:
