Jersey's Zoo will stay closed longer than first expected due to the "scale of the clear-up" needed after Storm Ciarán hit the island.

This includes the visitor centre, cafe and shops.

However, the site should hopefully be open by some point next week.

Several of its enclosures and buildings were damaged as winds of more than 100 miles per hour battered Jersey on Wednesday night into Thursday morning.

The zoo says all the animals are safe, and that it will inform islanders as soon as it knows when it will be ready to reopen.
