The Circus has come to town, just for this weekend. As on the last couple of visits they are installed in the supermarket car park, where there seems to be enough room for them and the shoppers. Animal acts are still an important part of circuses here so it was no surprise to see a lion in its cage among the circus vehicles.
He seems to be enjoying the late winter sunshine.
One would surprised to see anything like this in England but here it is not unusual. We recall seeing some fine tigers in the middle of Percy a few years ago.
