A group of monkeys, returned to Blackpool Zoo after a theft, have not lost their appetites despite their ordeal.

Five of the animals were stolen during a break-in earlier this week. Four were found abandoned in a cardboard box in West Yorkshire last night.

The youngest, a baby Cotton-Top Tamarin, is still missing. Zoo staff fear for its survival without its mother.

ITV News cameras captured the returned animals settling down, and enjoying a snack, this afternoon.
