Two-and-a-half-year old Bornean orangutan, Sprout, let playtime go to her head when she discovered the dressing up box at Dudley Zoo.

Keepers at the Castle Hill site had left the box filled with playthings in Sprout's external enclosure and watched in amusement as she ditched the toys in favour of a plastic bag which quickly became a cape and head scarf.
