Britain’s Last Lion Tamer | Special Report

Britain’s last remaining lion tamer, Thomas Chipperfield, says he’s determined to keep touring the UK despite increasing opposition.

The 25-year-old’s family has been entertaining crowds for generations with big cat shows.

He insists the animals are well looked after and that animal rights campaigners are spreading lies about his circus.

Sky’s Joe Tidy went to meet him and his lions, Tsavo and Assegai, as well as protesters and supporters of his show.
