Lost Pink Floyd pig lands at last

An inflatable pig that floated away during Ex-Pink Floyd member Roger Waters' set at the Coachella music festival has been found.
Organisers of the Californian bash had offered a $10,000 (£5,000) reward and lifetime passes to the event for the return of the inflatable, which was tethered to the ground while Waters played Pink Floyd track Pigs.
Two families found the pig, which is the width of two buses, outside their homes.
According to the BBC, they have decided to halve the reward and share the four lifetime tickets to the Coachella festival.
The inflatable took the image of a ticket ballot box for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama and bore the slogans "fear building walls" and "don't be led to the slaughter".
It has been a signature stage presence at Pink Floyd gigs since it first appeared on the 1977 cover of 'Animals' and the song 'Pigs on Wings'.
