Carlisle has hosted the largest auction of organic Alpacas in the country.

58 of a Northumbrian herd of 82 have been sold, many of them pregnant.

The Peruvian animals have become increasingly popular, with around 30,000 of them in the UK now.

They were sold by Judith Russell, a farmer in Fourstones, near Hexham in Northumberland.
