Fifteen pregnant sheep certainly are, having arrived at Wroxham Barns in time for its lambing festival.

The ewes, a mix of romney and Dorset horns, made the five-and-a-half-hour trip from the Cotswolds to Norfolk on Tuesday, January 14.

They are carrying between one and three lambs each and are all due to give birth between February 15 and 23.

Ben Marshall, general manager at Wroxham Barns, said: "We got a different breed of sheep this time around, which will make for very cute lambs.

"We feel it is so important to show and teach children about the miracle of life and over our lambing live event families will be able to watch lambs giving birth if they are here at the right time.

"It shouldn't be anything too gory and our team will be at the maternity barn to answer any questions."
