Wintry conditions might be a worry for motorists, but for some at Knowsley Safari Park the falling snow has proved a novel piece of entertainment.

The wildlife reserve has shared footage of the snow falling around its animals, including Amur tigers who have never experienced such weather before.

The video shows tigers, deer and kiang, a species of wild ass native to Tibet, all looking at home in their snow-covered habitats.

Knowsley Safari Park in Merseyside is home to more than 700 animals from giraffes, rhinos and lions to baboons and bison.

The 550-acre park was first opened in 1971 and recently gave its AMur tigers a new 10,000 square metre home.
