Ayton lamb born early

Christmas came early at Riverside Farm in Carr Lane, East Ayton.

Farmer’s grandson Jamie Ward, 11, woke up to the news that one of his granddad's flock of 20 had given birth to a lamb.

The lamb, which has been named Lucy, was not due until the new year, said Jamie’s mum Laura Barker, whose dad, David Ward, owns and runs the farm.

It was born over two weeks before Christmas.
