    The hunt is on for a turtle that attacked a child in a lake in southern Germany.

    The eight year old boy was bitten twice on the ankle, injuring his achilles tendon.

    The popular summer-holiday lake in the town of Irsee was drained and cordoned off.

    Volunteers and members of the local fire brigade have been searching the mud and long grass for the animal.
