The owners of a tourist attraction in Thailand are scrambling to track down missing crocodiles after dozens escaped when floods swept the area over the weekend.

Suthawut Temtub, a spokesman for the Million Years Stone Park and Crocodile Farm, said 28 crocodiles have been recaptured since breaking away from a park enclosure on Sunday night. The attraction is close to the beach resort of Pattaya.

He said the farm houses more than 2,000 crocodiles and it is not yet known how many are still missing.

The missing crocodiles are up to 13ft in length.
