MONKEYS have moved into a luxury new pad at Colchester Zoo.

The Colubus monkeys temporarily moved in with the zoo's Patas monkeys while their old enclosure was demolished for the work to take place.

The home has now been completed and they have moved in, bringing their new Patas monkey pals with them.

A zoo spokesman said: "They are enjoying having aerial views over the zoo and surrounding areas and have been seen climbing their beams which reach up to nine metres tall.

"Their old enclosure located in the Kingdom of the Wild building and will be redeveloped in the future so watch this space."

Both species of monkey are native to Africa.
