Science Editor

Staff at Woburn Safari Park say they’re devastated after its entire troop of 13 Patas monkeys died in a fire which broke out in their enclosure – just days after several animals were killed in a blaze at London zoo. Officials said although staff and firefighters rushed to the scene in the early hours of this morning, it’s thought all the monkeys had already died before they arrived.
