Video: Three-legged tortoise on road to recovery after having wheel fitted made out of lego

A tortoise that had to have its leg amputated after a vicious dog attack is back on its feet after having a WHEEL fitted - made out of a LEGO.

Little seven-year-old Vince escaped from his home and was found injured by neighbours missing his front leg in August. The animal was taken to Vets4Pets in Banbury, Oxon, where owner Kara Paynton, 33, was told her beloved pet might die. Vets operated on Vince - who is just 13cm long and is 10cm wide - and saved his life by amputating his leg. But the procedure left the pet crippled and barely able to walk.
