A tiger has killed a man in Tbilisi in Georgia, after escaping from the zoo there in the wake of a flood.

The big cat was spotted across the Georgian capital after escaping, before mauling a man to death in a disused factory.

It was eventually found and killed.

Many zoo animals had been on the loose after escaping the zoo when the river Vere broke its banks.
