A nine stone tortoise has been reunited with his owner after after he made a great escape from his garden in Suffolk.

Titan the tortoise, who is 35 years old, was found by a member of the public last week.

His owner Richard was shell- shocked when he found out he'd escaped from this garden in Kesgrave near Ipswich.

Titan had slowly made his way to a nearby road - around 500 metres away. Police were called - but at nine stone, returning him home was the easiest though.

It took a number of officers to lift the tortoise into a van and drive him home.

This isn't the first time Titan has made a great escape- but Richard hopes this is the last of his adventures.
