    Ms Machin said she was “over the moon” Tommy was back and thanked everyone who had helped.

    Tommy had been put in a neighbouring garden and was found on Friday evening.

    Ms Machin had seen the boys from her window in Allesley Park and believed they were just looking at the tortoise, but she said “one went up the road with it.”

    “I was just so shocked and I knew I wouldn’t be able to run after them,” she said.

    The female tortoise has been her pet since she was 14 and has been cared for by her children and grandchildren.

    ‘She’s precious’

    “It’s the world to me. It’s like losing one of my children, ” she said.


     

    “People would think I was crazy just over a tortoise.

    “I’m happy because she’s just precious. I would never have got over it if I had never found her.

    “I’m very grateful for everybody’s kindness and thoughts and for them understanding that she meant such a lot to me.”

    Pauline Venables, who edits the local newsletter Allesley Park Focus, said residents had offered to check bins and gardens in the search.

    “It really hit a lot of people. It’s great to get a happy ending. It’s magical,” she said.
