A group of penguins at a Great Yarmouth attraction have been protected from the hot weather with the help of a parasol.

Staff at Great Yarmouth Sea Life Centre have put up a parasol in its penguin enclosure.

As the sun beats down the 15 South American Humboldt penguins can take advantage of the new installation to keep cool.

A spokesman for the centre said: 'The 15-strong group of South American Humboldt penguins at Great Yarmouth Sea Life Centre have been sweltering a bit in the current temperatures this coast line has been experiencing.

'Their ingenious keepers have adapted part of the penguin area by placing a parasol umbrella to create enough shade to keep them in comfort.
