The 15 pregnant sheep that arrived in Wroxham Barns in January have given birth, just in time for half-term.

There are currently 11 little lambs running around the maternity tent, with more expected to arrive over February half-term.

Ben Marshall, general manager at Wroxham Barns, said: "We sadly lost one of the lambs during the first birth but all of the other lambs and mums are doing really well.

"If people come to Wroxham Barns they may even see one of the lambs being born in our sheltered maternity tent."
