Hundreds of people have been making the most of the trail map or mobile app to find the pigs and tick them off.

But The Ipswich Building Society-sponsored porker had to be removed for safety reasons after sustaining damage on July 2.

On Saturday, Pretty Penny returned to her adoring fans, and Tweeted: “Today I’ll be back at Cromwell Square on the #pigsgonewild trail. Come and say hello!”

Organisers have already hailed the success of the trail so far having seen hundreds of people get involved.
