Around 15,000 crocodiles have escaped from a farm in South Africa amid heavy rains and flooding.

The predators sprung from the Rakwena Crocodile Farm in the far north of the country when owners were forced to open the gates to prevent a storm surge.

A number have since been recaptured, but at least half remain on the loose, scattered far and wide.

One turned up on a school rugby pitch 120 kilometres away.
