A TOUCH of the tropics is being introduced to Suffolk with the launch of the county's first Butterfly House.

A colourful swarm of new arrivals was due to be unveiled at Jimmy's farm today.

Jimmy Doherty, fresh from his new BBC series, 'Jimmy Doherty's Farming Heroes,' was due to launch the new attraction, cutting the ribbon at 12.30pm.

The opening of the haven for indigenous and tropical butterflies at the farm is a dream come true for the pig farmer.

He said: “We've been hard at work this year, creating a wonderful tropical jungle, full of beautiful butterflies, birds, fish and insects.

“I cannot wait for the public to come and explore our fantastic Butterfly House and gardens.”
