A "feisty and bushy tailed" red panda has been called Miranda, after the actress and comedian Miranda Hart.

Laura Ashton, from Woburn Safari Park, said staff are big fans of Hart.

The one-year-old now joins pals Mambo and Mali at the park where she has claimed the role of "alpha female".

"She is the feistiest of the three and can be easily identified by her beautiful, very fiery, ginger fur," said Laura.

There's not been any word yet from Miranda about her views on the naming honour.

But to quote her show: "Such fun!"
