Vets remove 3kg of tongue from bear

A bear with a massively swollen tongue has been operated on by a team of vets in Myanmar.

Nyan htoo had been suffering from a mystery illness since he was a cub.

He is said to be "recovering well" after his four-hour operation by a team including Heather Bacon from the University of Edinburgh.
