A £2.5 million pound project will see a colony of Gentoo penguins move in to a specialised enclosure at the SeaLife centre in Birmingham. The new enclosure will be home to the penguins from next Easter .
Gentoo penguins are normally found in the Antarctic and their new enclosure will try to reproduce the conditions found there. Some of the £2.5 million pounds is going towards the creation of several viewing platforms and a controlled visiting area where temperatures will stay around 8C.
The Dragonboat Festival has taken place in Brindley Place in Birmingham today. The event, which hopes to raise money for Birmingham Children's Hospital, sees local businesses compete against each other on the Fazeley Canal.
Organisers say there are many activities taking place.
