A SOUTHSEA couple discovered a terrapin under a pile of seaweed on Eastney Beach.

Martyn and Merrill Powell took the creature to The Blue Reef Aquarium where staff told them it was a large turtle which normally lives in fresh water.

Mr Powell said: ‘Thank goodness we decided against putting it into the seawater as it would have probably killed her.’
