The residents of a care home in Wiltshire received a rather unusual visitor as part of their festive build-up today.

The people living at Goodson Lodge Care Home in Hilperton near Trowbridge were surprised by Charlie the therapy donkey.

It might look like a lot of fun but animal therapy is said to have serious health benefits like lowing blood pressure and stress levels.
