It’s an interesting tradition at the Royal Veterinary College near Brookmans park - the naked calendar.

Final year vet students have taken part in a photoshoot with a difference.

It was time for the animals to rescue the vets as the creatures hid the vets’ most intimate areas during the photoshoot,

Veterinary student Ben Smith, of Potters Bar, said: “It was a really fun project to be involved in.

“At first everyone was a bit nervous about stripping off.

After ten minutes, the atmosphere was more relaxed and the shoot was over so quickly.”
