Clyde the turtle is back at her home at Blue Planet Aquarium.

A turtle that was stolen from her tank at Blue Planet Aquarium in Ellesmere Port has been returned safe and well — in a washing up bowl.


Clyde, who is a 20cm/8in mud turtle, was reportedly taken from an aquarium by a young boy who climbed into the tank on Tuesday. CCTV later showed a boy carrying something under his jumper.

Experts had warned that Clyde could die without specialist care. Fortunately she was returned on Wednesday. A spokesperson for Cheshire Police said that after speaking to the group of people who returned the turtle, the matter had been dealt with through 'restorative justice' and no arrests made.

To celebrate and to say a huge 'thank you' to everyone who tweeted and shared posts heralding her return, Blue Planet has announced that it is slashing 25% off prices this weekend (September 3–4) on pre-booked tickets, in an online only special offer.
