Hamerton Zoo Park gibbon turns 60

A gibbon is celebrating his 60th birthday at Hamerton Zoo Park in Cambridgeshire.

He's believed to be the oldest lar, or white-haired, gibbon in captivity, where they usually live up to about 40 years old.

In the wild in the forests of south east Asia, they have a life expectancy of about 20 years.

Ben shares the same name as his keeper.
