In pictures: Meerkats at Lincoln by the Sea

Photo gallery: See the adorable meerkats and cold reptiles on show at the city centre beach on August 9.

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, who take animals, reptiles and insects to various events.
