A Wraxall zoo has scooped a hat-trick of tourism awards.

Noah's Ark Zoo Farm won three gongs at the South West's annual awards evening.

The zoo took home the large visitor attraction award, access and inclusive award and the ethical, responsible and sustainable tourism award.

For the first time, the zoo was recognised for efforts in access and inclusivity following the introduction of its ark for all initiative in 2018.

The project aims to be welcoming and inclusive to all visitors, with the first stage resulting in the installation of a changing places toilet, accessible play equipment and signs.

A zoo spokesman said: "We are delighted by the triple award success, ending our 20th anniversary year on a high and motivating the team to continue to develop and improve into 2020.

"We are devoted to passing on a passion for sustainability."
