Gorilla statues line the banks of the Thames in London

Twenty life-size gorilla statues have been moved from Bristol to highlight the decline of wild gorillas and raise money for their protection.

They will be auctioned by Bristol Zoo later this month.

Piers Gibbon, a TV presenter and wildlife expert, told Radio 5 live Morning Reports which statue he was interested in.
