Trotters Pig returned to the Pigs Gone Wild trail in Ipswich this lunchtime after being damaged earlier this month.

His piggy platform was bare save for a notice which alerted visitors that he had been taken to “piggy hospital” for “some oinkment” and would be returning soon.

Now Trotters, sponsored by Martin and Co, is back ready for the weekend.

Pigs Gone Wild project manager Norman Lloyd said he is “delighted” that Trotters is back.

“We cannot thank John Grose enough for their hard work and support, saving our bacon and healing him so quickly,” he said. “He’s now as good as – or if not better than new.

“We’d also like to say thank you to local artist, Emma Graham, who stepped in to patch Trotters up as his original artist, David Graham is up north and therefore couldn’t repaint him.”
