In pictures: Meerkats at Lincoln by the Sea

African meerkats Nkofi (which means “ruler”) and Mandisa (meaning “sweet”) took shelter under a gazebo a few yards from the beach in the city centre on August 9.

The furry creatures are owned by Rob and Susan Louth of Ruskington from www.reptilelife.co.uk, who take animals, reptiles and insects to various events.
