BBC Norfolk reporter Alex Dunlop had a close encounter with a bunch of excited primates while trying to present a news report.

Dunlop was at Banham Zoo in Norfolk, reporting on the annual animal stock take, when eight lemurs swooped in, pulling at his sweater.

“This could take some time,” Dunlop can be heard groaning as the lemurs climb up and down him.

On his second attempt to relay the news, Dunlop gets nipped on his finger by one of the lemurs. He barely gets as far as, “I’m at one of the region’s zoos where they’re doing their annual stock-take of animals,” when he is bitten yet again.

“Ow! You little nipper,” screams the frustrated reporter.

The clip ends with Dunlop saying, “Well I think this is one of the more enjoyable parts of the job: counting lemurs.”
