Youtuber, 7, on mission to save animals, supported by Sir David Attenborough

ITV News Reporter Chloe Keedy meets Leo Sordello-Savale, seven, who is on a mission to protect wildlife

A seven-year-old boy trying to save the planet from his bedroom has gained the support of Sir David Attenborough.

Leo Sordello-Savale, from Camberwell in south London, started watching Sir David Attenborough's programmes as a means of escape from being stuck at home in lockdown last year.

It inspired him to start his own channel 'Leo's Animal Planet'.

What started as a lockdown project has turned into a mission to "save the animals".

The seven-year-old has caught the attention of Sir David Attenborough after he sent the wildlife expert a letter thanking him for his shows and telling him about his Youtube channel.
