    Rosie the Humboldt penguin arrived at Sewerby Hall and Gardens, near Bridlington, in 1990 and has surpassed the life expectancy for her species in the wild by around 10 years.

    Head zoo keeper John Pickering said: "It’s obviously a real shame that we can’t share it with the public in the normal way, but we look forward to welcoming visitors back to the zoo, and to the daily penguin feeding times, as soon as we are able."

    Humboldt penguins are classed as vulnerable to extinction due to changes in climate and overfishing of their preferred prey species.

    An East Riding of Yorkshire Council spokesman said: "Life expectancy of Humboldt penguins in the wild is 15 to 20 years and Rosie is believed to be one of the oldest penguins in the UK."
