The mice and other animals surrounded two mummified human bodies and the burial chamber contains detailed paintings of funeral processions and people working in the fields.

Experts say the tomb is more than 2,000 years old and is thought to be the resting place of a senior official called Tutu and his wife. It was discovered in October when smugglers were caught illegally digging for artefacts.

The Egyptian government’s antiquities ministry hopes the finds will draw visitors to the desert town 390km (242 miles) south of Cairo, near the Nile.
