Joy turned to sadness at Fisher’s Farm Park this weekend when Bobby - thought to be the world’s smallest lamb - died on Saturday.

Weighing only 2.2lb, Bobby was the runt of three triplets and needed constant care.

His story received national attention on Friday, when the owners of Fishers Farm, Wisborough Green, announced they had sent his details to Guinness World Records.

Bobby was by far the smallest lamb staff had ever seen, and they were confident that he would be a record breaker.
