LINTON Zoo bosses have expressed their delight after the tourist attraction enjoyed its busiest May Bank Holiday for “several years”.

Visitors were treated to keeper talks, animal feeds and fun activities which were held throughout each day. The animal encounters always proved popular, with guests able to meet and touch some of the smaller zoo animals such as snakes, lizards, tortoises, guinea pigs and owls.

Zoo manager Kim Simmons said: “After a long, cold and miserable winter it was wonderful to see hundreds of visitors coming out to see us over the weekend, the busiest May Day Bank Holiday for several years.

“We thank everyone for their support.”
