Animals across the West Midlands are being introduced to Valentine's Day.

In Shropshire, a greyhound rescue centre hopes a speed dating event can help match would-be owners with dogs in need of a home.

There's also love in the air at the National Sea Life Centre in Birmingham.

Keepers hope to match Prince the penguin with the partner of his dreams in a bid for a first chick born at the centre in two years.
