Injured turtle finds new home after marathon trip from Maldives to Scotland


An injured sea turtle has become the first of its kind in the UK, after arriving at its new home at Sea Life Loch Lomond after a marathon 5,000-mile journey from the Maldives. April, an olive ridley turtle, lost a front flipper after becoming entangled in an abandoned fishing net. Her injuries mean she cannot survive in the wild.
