New llama at Stewart Park

There’s a new addition to the family at Middlesbrough’s historic Stewart Park – and she needs a name.

The baby llama was born to mum, Layla, on the morning of Wednesday, August 31 and was quickly on her feet.

Both are said to be doing fine, with plenty of protective attention from Winston, the park’s male llama.

Park wardens report that mum has been humming to the new arrival – and clearly needs some help with a name for the youngster.

Tom Mawston, chairman of the Friends of Stewart Park, said: “The llamas are one of the most popular attractions at Stewart Park and it’s great to have one born on site.

“This is a very important year for the park – it’s one of the jewels in Middlesbrough’s crown and the huge programme of restoration and refurbishment will ensure it remains a popular leisure destination for generations to come.

“People have come up with some great names for our llamas and other animals in the past, and I’m looking forward to some imaginative – and maybe topical – suggestions for the latest arrival.”

Suggestions for a name for the new arrival at Stewart Park can be made
