Justin Bieber's pet monkey was seized by customs as he attempted to take it with him on a flight to Germany, according to reports.

The 19-year-old pop star faces a fine of more than £10,000 for trying to take Mally the capuchin on his private jet from Los Angeles to Munich, The Sun said.

It added that the animal, which did not have the correct papers, broke German health laws and will now be kept in quarantine.
