Elephants with flags join Olympic torch relay

Elephants at the West Midlands Safari Park performed a "trunk salute" for the Olympic torch after it made a stop there on board a steam train.

The Worcestershire Express, from the Severn Valley Railway, stopped at the park in Bewdley on day six of the torch relay.

The two female African elephants, 20-year-old Five and Latabe, 19, also waved a union jack to mark the occasion.

Phil Mackie reports.
