Gorilla surprise for photographer
10:00am Sunday 3rd November 2013 in News
A VETERAN Fleet Street photographer was joined by a gorilla as he spoke to villagers about his career.
Harvey Mann discussed his work during Navestock Village Society’s AGM which has seen him take pictures for newspapers around the world.
For three years of his career, Mr Mann worked in Rwanda as he followed in the footsteps of Dian Fossey, a zoologist murdered by poachers.
His time there was spent with silverback gorillas and a more comical moment was brought to the meeting when society member Penelope Tyzack performed cabaret in a gorilla suit.
The talk was followed by a wild and woolly themed quiz.
