    There's An Ostrich On The Run In Tunbridge Wells

    This is not a drill.

    The story appeared in the Kent and Sussex Courier.

    It was definitely an ostrich. I know what an ostrich looks like, I just don't expect to see one in Speldhurst.
    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.

    It was last seen somewhere on this road.

    Needless to say, there's a spoof Twitter account now.

    In sort-of-related news, here's a GIF of a randy ostrich chasing a giraffe.
