Mojo's dad has two new babies

The father of Belfast Zoo's famous monkey escapee, Mojo, has added two more babies to his family.

Tommy, who came to Belfast from Krefeld Zoo in Germany eight years ago, is now the proud father of 21 monkeys - following the birth of two new Colobus monkeys in the last few months.

The keepers haven't been able to catch the energetic newcomers - who like to play with the rest of the family - to find out what sex they are, so they have not been named yet.

Both the two mothers and babies are doing well.

Tommy, who is 11 years of age, made the headlines recently when one of his sons, Mojo, escaped from Belfast Zoo in June.

He was on the loose for about a week.
