Diego the brown bear has officially arrived in Suffolk as the first footage exploring his new home has been released.

Diego has arrived at Jimmy's Farm and Wildlife Park in Wherstead, near Ipswich, after being saved by the farm from being killed following his previous home closing in Sweden.

He will be unveiled to the public for the first time from Thursday, March 28.

Video footage from Jimmy's Farm and Wildlife Park shows Diego walking through the woods, taking a swim in his pond and climbing trees as he takes in his new home.

Jimmy Doherty, TV chef and owner of the park, said: "I am over the moon that he is here safely, at his forever home, and incredibly proud of all my team and the public who helped us get here by donating to Diego's cause.

Stevie Sheppard, park director, added: "Seeing him walk into his new home was one of the highlights of my career."
