Today is billed to be the hottest day of the year so far and at Drusillas Park in East Sussex, the staff are taking no chances.

Down on the Farm, kune kune pig Porker has had his sun cream applied by Section Leader, Sophie Leadbitter. Just as our own skin needs to be protected from the sun’s strong rays, steps must be taken to ensure this little piggy does not burn.

The keepers therefore apply high factor sun cream to ensure the happy hog remains the pig-ture of health.
