It is lambing time across the region - and our weatherman Ross is playing 'midwife'

Ross helps with lambing

Despite our recent unsettled weather the signs of spring keep coming.

One of the clearest signs is the number of lambs popping up in fields across the region. Ross Hutchinson went to a farm near Barnard Castle and got a lot more 'hands on' than he intended.

Watch him playing 'midwife' here:

Alison and Steven from Doe Park farm have hundreds more births on the way.

You will be pleased to hear both Pam & Ian the lambs, and their mother are all doing well.
