'Five-legged sheep' Quinto gives birth to twins in Morpeth

20 February 2015 Last updated at 13:50

A sheep born with five legs has "defied the odds" by giving birth to two healthy lambs, a Northumberland farm has said.

Quinto made news around the world after being born with an additional front limb at Whitehouse Farm Centre, in Morpeth, in 2013.

She has given birth to Susie and Sofie, neither of whom have any extra limbs.

Karen Lovatt, general manager, said the farm was "delighted" with the new arrivals.

Ms Lovatt said Quinto's fifth leg was initially viewed with scepticism, with some people saying it was an April Fool's joke.
