1. The story appeared in the Kent and Sussex Courier.
2. The paper has a number of brilliant eyewitness quotes. Including:
It was definitely an ostrich. I know what an ostrich looks like, I just don’t expect to see one in Speldhurst.
3. And the Telegraph has quoted local Colin Grant, 45:
It was dashing around pretty fast - when I first saw it it overtook me and I was doing about 30mph, so it must have been going at 40mph plus.
