UK heatwave: Carrot lollies keep animals cool

Lollies have been made by sticking vegetables in cups of water and freezing them


Carrot lollipops, ice blocks and mud baths are being used at a Warwickshire attraction to keep their animals cool during the heatwave.

Temperatures are set to reach 35C (95F) in the UK over the next few days.

Extra shades and fans have also been brought in to help the animals at Hatton Country World near Warwick.

“It is just little things in the heat of the day when it gets very warm, it just helps to cool them down,” Alice Latham, from the attraction, said.

The ice lollies have been made for many of the site’s 450 animals, which include sheep, goats and rabbits, while extra shelter has also been put up to provide shade for their human visitors.
