FIRST time visitors to Sidmouth Donkey Sanctuary said they would not be stopped enjoying their holiday in Devon by an E-coli scare.

Andrea Clayton and partner Paul Rogers, from Newbury, Berks, took son Louis on a day trip to Sidmouth on Tuesday after discovering the sanctuary during their holiday in Devon.

Little Louis, two-and-a-half, loves donkeys and, clasping a cuddly one bought there, enjoyed a close-up look at Jubilee during his visit.

Mum Andrea said the E-coli scare had not put them off visiting animal attractions and had already been to Paignton Zoo.

She said: "As long as Louis keeps his hands clean he is alright. He doesn't like his hands to be dirty and we have baby wipes and hand gel with us."

She and Paul believe it is up to parents to keep an eye on what their children are doing.
