Africa Alive! remains closed to the public as work continues to repair the zoo's big cat enclosure following damage from Storm Eunice.

A tree was brought down by winds which reached up 75mph and ripped through fencing at the zoo's lion enclosure on Friday, February 18.

The predators had been moved to a different enclosure prior to the severe gusts, but Africa Alive! has been closed so keepers could repair the damage.

A spokesperson said: "We do apologise for the inconvenience this has caused and would like to thank you for your support and patience.

"The lions are safe but we are now looking at potentially relocating the pride to another zoo in the interim whilst their enclosure is fixed and sadly we are unable to open until this has been completed.

"Thank you for your understanding, stay safe and we look forward to seeing all very soon.

"Your original booking can additionally also be used at Africa Alive at any time over the next six months (for single use only)."
