KAREN the sheep gave birth to a little lamb last week and staff at Spitalfields City Farm need your help to name her.
Easter visitors will have the chance to name the Buxton Street farm's newest arrival as part of this weekend's celebrations.
Helen Galland, animal manager at the farm, said: "Karen is a little bit in awe - this is the first lamb she's had.
"We're all delighted. This is a rare breed and it's great to see her up and doing so well."
