Longleat's monkeys entertain visitors

A TROOP of monkeys have been enjoying the recent heavy rain at a Wiltshire attraction.
Visitors to Longleat Safari and Adventure Park have been enjoying the actions of the Rhesus monkeys which have been splashing around in puddles at the park.
Deputy head keeper Ian Turner said: "Watching them jumping about in the puddles and even throwing stones and other objects into the water to see how big a splash they can make has been great.
It's obvious they genuinely enjoy themselves, even if the rest of us are finding the rain less entertaining."
