But all these turtles have one thing in common - they have all come to Lowestoft for the summer.

As part of the annual Turtle Trail, 20 models have made their homes around the town, from Sparrows Nest to Royal Plain.

And eager turtle-hunters were out in force on Saturday for the first day of the trail, which is organised by Lowestoft Vision, the town’s Business Improvement District.

BID manager Darren Newman said: “We think the designs are absolutely fantastic this year. What’s great is on day one we’ve got lots of people out on the turtle hunt.

“We want people to let us know which is their favourite and we hope it will bring people into the town.”
