Portsmouth friends to tackle 101-mile walk for man with cancer

Have your say

A collection of rare turtles which emit a foul smell when stressed has gone on display at Portsmouth’s Blue Reef Aquarium.

The nine African helmeted turtles were part of a shipment of reptiles seized by customs at Heathrow airport.

It’s believed the tiny olive-coloured turtles were destined for the pet trade.
