Protest site monkey farm to close.
Bosses at Shamrock Monkey Farm at Small Dole, near Henfield, West Sussex, said they will shut the primate facility within the next few weeks.
Jobs will be lost as a result of the closure, according to a statement from the firm which pledged the humane relocation of the animals.
The statement gives no indication as to why the farm is closing.
It said: "Shamrock Great Britain Ltd announces that its primate facility will be permanently closed in the coming weeks.
"The effective date of the closure will be dictated by the professional relocation of the animals residing in the facility.
"We regret the loss of employment in Small Dole resulting from this difficult decision. Some within our small staff have been with us for more than 25 years."
