THIS tortoise has been stolen from a family garden in York.

Tina, a Hermann’s tortoise, was taken from the garden in the Ouseacres area off Boroughbridge Road.

Her owner said the only way she could have disappeared was for someone to take her. They said: “We let her have run of the garden while the weather was good and we had checked there was nowhere she could get out of the garden.”

She was last seen on April 6 and the family have not been able to find her since. They hope someone may recognise the picture.

The matter has been reported to North Yorkshire Police. If you have any information please call the control room on 101.
