BBC reporter mobbed by lemurs

A BBC reporter got more than he bargained for when he tried to report from a lemur enclosure in a Norfolk Zoo today.

Reporter Alex Dunlop was trying to broadcast from Banham Zoo when eight of the creatures attacked him on camera.

The furry primates seemed pleased to see him and danced excitedly around before jumping on his arms, legs and back.

And then they started biting him.

Grimacing in pain he complains ‘this could take some time’ as the lemurs pull at his jumper.

Fighting a losing battle Alex tries to record a take but it ends after just three words and a scream when one nips his finger.

The next time he got as far as saying ‘and I’m at one of the region’s zoos where they’re doing their annual stock-take of animals’ before giving up in agony.

Then he lets rip ‘Ow! You little ****’ after the cute-looking lemur goes in for a second bite.

He added: ‘Well I think this is one of the more enjoyable parts of the job: counting lemurs.’
