Some of Blackpool Zoo's most famous residents are back home and moving into rather swanky accommodation.
The zoo's family of Orangutans are moving into a new upgraded enclosure which has cost around a million pounds. Vicky and her daughters, Cherie and Summer, along with resident male Ramon, have spent 18 months away while the transformation took place. Blackpool's Mayor will officially unveil the new ape house later.
