Mojo finds new home in the sun.

Mojo, the monkey who became a celebrity after escaping from Belfast Zoo, is to be sent to a new home in South Africa.

The Colobus monkey fled after an "argument" with his dad in June but returned to his enclosure a week later.

After his return, it was decided that the fall out with his father, Tommy, could not be reconciled.

Mojo and his six brothers will now join the large monkey colony at South Africa's Induna Primate and Parrot Park.

Belfast Zoo manager Mark Challis said it was time for the young male monkey to "strike out on his own and form his own troop".
