A mum has made an appeal to reunite a lost tortoise with its rightful owner.
Lynne Curtis, of Tennyson Road, Great Yarmouth, has taken in the tortoise, after it was found in an alley near Alderman Swindell School.
The tortoise, which has distinctive shell markings, has been in the care of Mrs Curtis since Wednesday, and she is looking to find its rightful owners.
She said: 'We have taken it to the vets and have been told it is healthy but it is not micro-chipped.
'I really want to get it back to its real owners, but if we can't find them it will have to go to a rescue home, which we don't want to take it to.'
Mrs Curtis said she will gladly return to tortoise, providing the person who attempts to claim it can give its breed and gender.
She added: 'Unlike a dog, it's difficult to tell if a tortoise recognises its owner, so we want to be really sure we have the right one.'
