Alpacas Ben and Jerry pose for photos at retirement send-off at Vauxhall City Farm in London

Beloved alpacas Ben and Jerry posed for photos and enjoyed a special send-off on Sunday 20 February, after almost two decades in public service. The pair are heading into retirement after 17 years at central London's Vauxhall City Farm. But before they move to the countryside on 23 February, visitors were invited to say hi one last time and have photos taken with them. During their long careers, Ben and Jerry starred in the Star Wars film The Force Awakens, rubbed shoulders with royalty and were featured on the BBC multiple times.
