The crocodiles at Million Years Stone Park, a zoo and reptile farm, are thought to have made a break for freedom on Sunday when heavy rains caused a mudslide around an enclosure containing thousands of the creatures, said a spokesman for the farm, Suthawuth Temthab.

Mr Suthawuth predicted most of the rest would be rounded up on Tuesday.
