Hungry pandas call for extra bamboo at zoo

Zoo keepers in Sussex are urgently asking gardeners to give them food for their pandas.

The red pandas, like Mulan, can eat up to two kilograms of bamboo a day - and supplies at Drusillas Park in Alfriston are currently running low.

The animals originate from the Himalayan mountains of China, India and Nepal. Mulan and her partner Anmar's diet consists almost entirely of the plant. We hear from head keeper Mark Kenward.

Investigation underway into huge recycling centre fire

Firefighters have spent the day damping down after a massive blaze at an industrial recycling centre in Sussex.

It broke out last night at Light Brothers depot in Southerham near Lewes, engulfing 100 tonnes of waste material.

A plume of dense, black smoke could be seen from at least 20 miles away.

People living nearby were warned to keep their doors and windows closed, as Malcolm Shaw reports.
