Singer Peter Gabriel wants to create new internet...for monkeys

The musician Peter Gabriel has told ITV Meridian that he wants to set up an "inter-species internet" - to be used by apes as well as humans.

The former Genesis frontman, who was born and lives in Surrey, was speaking in Downing Street to our political correspondent Phil Hornby.

He's also handed in a petition calling for a ban on monkeys being kept as pets.
