Marwell Zoo monkey escapes into food shop

Two monkeys escaped from their enclosure at Marwell Zoo in Winchester earlier.

Mobile phone footage taken at the scene by Kevin O'Donnell showed one of the macaques running into the public food shop.

Marwell Zoo put a lockdown in place and the pair was successfully retrieved and returned to their enclosure shortly after 12:40 BST.

No one was hurt and an investigation by the zoo is under way.
