A Suffolk care farm providing hands-on activities for vulnerable people has celebrated the birth of its first kid goat.

Pathways Care Farm in Lowestoft opened a year ago after the chariety secured a long-term lease on a disused farm.

Baby billy goat Amos arrived on March 11 - his father's first birthday.

Chair of trustees Geoff Stevens said: 'This was a very special event for everyone at Pathways and our volunteers were there to witness it. There is something truly magical about seeing a new life enter the world and our team were very moved to play a part in the delivery of little Amos who arrived on his dad's first birthday.'

Amos was joined by a second kid, Asher, born to Dandelion, three days later.
