A wildlife park near Doncaster which saw record visitor numbers last year has created more than 100 seasonal jobs as part of its expansion plans.

Yorkshire Wildlife Park is recruiting for 113 roles at its new retail village and cafe, which will open in March.

The positions are for the March to October season.

The park is also expecting visits to increase with the arrival of the country's only polar bear in the spring.

Park director, Cheryl Williams, said: "With all our plans for 2014 there is no doubt we need extra staff. We are delighted to be in a position to be recruiting staff and supporting our local community."

Last year, 440,000 people visited the attraction.
