Two bears at Whipsnade Zoo have woken up just in time for the attraction’s post-lockdown reopening.

In accordance with the Government’s planned lifting of certain coronavirus restrictions, the Bedfordshire zoo is due to welcome visitors again from April 12.

“I know they are such a favourite of visitors to ZSL Whipsnade Zoo,” he added.
