Two lambs at a farm in Claverham, near Weston-super-Mare, have shocked their owners by feeding from a cow.

The pair of two-week-old Suffolk lambs still feed from their mother but also help themselves to milk from a Hereford heifer.

One of their owners, John Atwell, said: "I've been farming all my life, 60-plus years, and I've never experienced anything like it before."

The lambs discovered the cow's milk after escaping from their mother's pen.
