In pictures: Monkeys saved from lab

Monkeys in their pen

These Capuchin monkeys are enjoying their new home in Dorset, after 88 of them were rescued from an animal testing lab in south America.


In Chile, the monkeys were being kept in cramped cages on their own, without sunlight or fresh air.


Some of them had been kept locked away for up to 20 years, only being allowed out to take part in experiments.


Now they're being looked after at Monkey World, where they're enjoying their first taste of freedom.
