Sumatran tiger taken to London Zoo to meet his match

London Zoo has welcomed its latest inhabitant - Jae Jae the Sumatran tiger, who has travelled nearly 4,000 miles to meet his new mate.

It is hoped he will breed with Melati, a female from Australia, and help save the critically endangered species.

There are only 300 Sumatran tigers left in the wild.

John Maguire reports.
