Animals - Lord Bath - Longleat, Wiltshire
A Rolls Royce car waits for a Lion to pass on Lord Bath's estate at Longleat, Wiltshire. In the car were Marcus Lipton M.P, Lord Bath and Jimmy Chipperfield, the co-originator of the project at Longleat where Lord Bath had introduced the lions as an additional attraction to visitors to the estate. Mt Marcus Lipton, who is to raise a question in the Commons about having lions in the park, was at Longleat at the invitation of Lord Bath to see the security arrangements.
