Monkeys at London Zoo are being taught not to steal sunglasses after a group of them have started taking them off the heads of visitors to the zoo.

The Bolivian squirrel monkeys have built up a stash of designer shades, so now keepers are giving them sunglasses coated with a bitter tasting apple substance to hopefully put the monkeys off.

4 years ago keepers had to teach them not to steal mobile phones.
