Lollies for lemurs as heat rises

Bristol Zoo has been handing out lollipops to its lemurs and frozen iced tea to its gorillas to help them beat the heat.

Its animals have been enjoying "healthy" lollies and plenty of water to help keep them hydrated.

Keeper Ryan Walker said many of the animals had been raised in Europe, so were more accustomed to cooler climates.

He said many animals had been sleeping through much of the day to help them cope with high temperatures.
