Penguin inspects King of Norway’s Guard

An inhabitant of Edinburgh Zoo has received an honour from the King of Norway's Guard.

King penguin Nils Olav has been awarded the status of Brigadier and began his new post by inspecting the regiment who are in Edinburgh for the Tattoo.

This is not the first time the battalion's mascot has been honoured.

Sir Nils was awarded a knighthood by King Harald V in 2008.
