Baby giant tortoises in the Galapagos Islands are to be monitored on weighing scales donated by a Yorkshire tour guide.

Santiago Bejarano, who organises trips from his headquarters in Trinity Lane, Beverley to the Pacific archipelago, will deliver two highly sensitive weighing scales tothe Galapagos National Park later this month.

The specialist scales will help them to monitor embryo growth of these creatures through their eggshells before returning them to the wild.
