A couple of tigers who've lived at London Zoo since 1997 have moved home.

Raika and her mate Lumpur have fronted fund-raising campaigns for London, but they've now transferred to Kent, to make way for new arrivals.

Both needed health checks before they travelled. Eyes, ears, chest - and of course, their razor-sharp teeth. Not surprisingly, the medics at London Zoo knocked them out with an anaesthetic before they got to work.
