It’s a grim time in the fun business. In Southend-on-Sea, the owner of Sealife says he may have to euthanise animals in his “zooquarium” because the annual cost of electricity has tripled from £240,000 to three quarters of a million pounds.

Philip Miller says keeping animals including monkeys, meerkats and tropical fish through the winter would be too costly, if the attraction was closed to save money.

“All these animals have to keep warm – or cold – or a combination of both*, and it’s on 24/7, seven days a week. And they have to be fed, so it’s a massive bill to maintain. They’ll all have to euthanised or we find other homes but all the other zoos are going to be in the same boat, I’d imagine,” Mr Miller said.

* I’m not sure what a “combination of being kept warm and cold” is in practice, but I hope he can sort something out.
