A two-tonne rhino that gored a keeper at Whipsnade Zoo in Bedfordshire had not shown any "uncharacteristic behaviour" beforehand, a report has revealed.

The man, in his 50s, was found semi-conscious at the zoo in November with injuries to his chest, abdomen and pelvis.

Central Bedfordshire Council is satisfied all safety checks were done.

Neither the zoo nor the council would say if the keeper was still in hospital.
