Traditional afternoon tea with crocodiles is being offered by a farm in Cambridgeshire.

Farmer Andy Johnson started his crocodile farm in Old Hurst, which includes a tearoom, about three years ago and breeds the animals for meat.

Seven crocodiles have been moved into a new enclosure where visitors can view them through toughened glass.

Mr Johnson said crocodile meat provides a "white, low fat meat" - eaten as a meat steak or even spare ribs.
