An old photograph of June playing with two lion cubs. A woman whose childhood friends included a lion, chimpanzee and polar bear has revealed her incredible family scrapbook more than 80 years after her dad opened the UKs biggest zoo. June Williams, 87, daughter of Chester Zoos original owner, George Mottershead, has unveiled her incredible childhood pictures as she revisits her family life in a new BBC drama. June moved into Oakfield House, Chester, Cheshire, with her mother Lizzie Mottershead and sister Muriel in 1930 when her father snapped up the small area of land for £3,500. They had only one gibbon and two goats when they moved in on December 7, 1930 but more than 80 years on, the zoo now boasts a whopping collection of 11,000 animals from 400 different species.

File photo dated 21/04/66 of Pattie Boyd in London’s West End wearing a mini skirt, as the British designer Mary Quant, widely credited with popularising the mini skirt has recalled its “feeling of freedom and liberation” 50 years after she took the fashion world by storm. Quant, who named the skirt after her favourite make of car, said she “couldn’t have imagined” in 1964 that it would become a staple of women’s clothing, but added: “It seemed then to be obvious, and so right”.
