A BRAVE group of intrepid explorers set out into Mildenhall Woods on Saturday to track the movements of a terrifying troll.

Reports of a troublesome troll causing havoc in the woods were made to Forest Heath District Council.

After hearing about the problems, an explorer with experience of tracking some of the world’s most dangerous creatures offered to lead a group of brave explorers into the woods.

Soon after setting off the group discovered an enormous footprint which they tracked to uncover the sites where the troll had been grooming, growing his vegetables and eating.

They even managed to track the troll to his toilet, where they made the surprising discovery that troll poo is actually green and glittery.

After collecting some samples, the explorers got back on the trail and eventually found the troll wrapped in a home-made hammock up a tree.

Keara Hayes, five, of Lakenheath, told the Bury Free Press that the troll was sleeping so the group had crept away, back to safety.

She said that she had great fun tracking trolls and is considering a career as a full-time troll hunter.

The Troll Walk was organised by Forest Heath District Council in conjunction with Blue Monkey Arts.
