Woman In Pain As Doctors Find 'Dead Tortoise' In Her Privates

Strange things do not only happen in Africa. A British woman has reportedly been questioned by police on Tenerife after doctors found a dead tortoise inside her vag-ina.

Staff at the A&E department of a medical centre in the south of the island are said to have called the police after making the bizarre discovery...

The woman (name withheld), described as an expat, had sought help after suffering pain in her geni-tal area which doctors diagnosed as an infection caused by the reptile.

Island newspaper El Dia claimed she told police she had begun to feel odd after going out partying with a group of British friends a couple of days earlier - but had no idea how the (little) tortoise ended up where it did.

The size of the reptile has not been revealed.

Island papers - and respected Spanish dailies which have echoed the story - have named the medical centre she attended as El Mojon in the municipality of Arona in the south of the island.

Police sources in Tenerife confirmed the story was true and officers had been asked to speak to a British woman about the bizarre discovery.
