'Rhino escape' social media story is just a rumour

Social media posts that two rhinos had escaped from a Pembrokeshire animal park during last night's storm are false, it has been confirmed.

Several posts late last evening on Facebook and Twitter talked about two rhinos escaping from Manor House Wildlife Park, St Florence.

But a spokesman for the park said: "I can confirm that our rhinos were safely and snugly tucked up in their house last night and haven't got a clue what all the fuss is about!"

The park also tweeted the same.

The road to St Florence was closed temporarily due to a roof blowing off a barn, but nothing to do with a rhino version of The Great Escape.

I saw something on twitter about a 2nd bus having issues going through flood water between Milford Haven and somewhere - anyone know about it?

PS rumours that you can catch a direct bus from Newgale to Ireland are NOT true ;-)
