Staff at Noah's Ark Zoo Farm in North Somerset are celebrating the arrival of their first ever elephant. Buta, a 31-year-old African elephant has moved into the largest purpose-built habitat in Northern Europe.
She'll soon be joined by Nissim, who is from her former herd, at the 20 acre site.
Work is underway on Europe's largest elephant sanctuary, being built at Noah's Ark near Wraxall in Somerset. It's hoped the 20 acre enclosure will open next summer. It's not the only elephant sanctuary being built in the area. Eli-Louise Wringe reports.
