Flooding clean up at Dartmoor Zoo

A Devon zoo has been clearing up after severe flooding over the weekend.

Dartmoor Zoo had been preparing to celebrate its fifth birthday, but had to temporarily close to the public.

Heavy rainfall caused bad damage to the attraction's pathways. Staff spent all of Sunday restoring public access.

The zoo was the subject of a Hollywood movie called We Bought A Zoo, which starred Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson.
