A farmer believes he has witnessed a Christmas miracle after his 'virgin' sheep gave birth to twin lambs.

Shirley the ewe hadn't shown any sign of mating with a ram and a recent ultrasound scan gave no indication she was pregnant .

Staff at White Post Farm in Farnsfield, Nottinghamshire, were stunned to discover the two newborn when they arrived for work on December 23.

Anthony Moore, from White Post Farm, said: "It is a Christmas miracle.

"The ewe hadn't been marked and the ultrasound was negative so it was a surprise to everyone.

"There was no evidence she was pregnant so it was pretty unusual. Both lambs are doing really well.

"The farm is buzzing with new life and festive cheer at the moment and this is the icing on the Christmas cake."
