A monkey who caused a stir by appearing in a Toronto Ikea store wearing a sheepskin coat and a nappy has been sent to a primate sanctuary.

Five-month-old Darwin was transferred to Story Book Farm Primate Sanctuary in Sunderland, Ontario, after spending the night in a city animal shelter.

His owner Yasmin Nakhuda, who was fined C$240 (£151) for owning a prohibited animal, told BBC Radio 5 live Up All Night that the Japanese snow macaque should not have been taken away from her.
