Lambs in Worcestershire get jackets during cold snap

Dozens of lambs born three weeks early on a farm in Worcestershire have been given jackets to help keep them warm during the cold snap.

Fifty lambs were born early on the farm near Redditch.

To stop them getting hypothermia, farmer Will Willison wrapped them up in jackets that have the added bonus of being high visibility to scare off predators.

Mr Willison explained how the jackets helped the lambs during the cold weather.
