A festive ferret wedding

It might be Christmas Eve, but today is an extra-special day for two furry friends in Washington.

Whilst many people will be spending the day busy with final preparations for tomorrow, two ferrets will be celebrating in a different way - by getting married.

A reception is being held at Washington's Pets At Home branch, where the newlyweds will arrive in style in a Rolls Royce.

There will also be a red carpet and special treats for guests.

The event is being held to help North Pennine Ferret Rescue and to raise awareness about ferrets and how to look after them responsibly.
