As Edinburgh Zoo reopens, its chief executive David Field has said it's a new era.

"Today is booked out - it's a wonderful new day, it's almost like we're opening the zoo for the first time.

"It's exciting, there's a little bit of trepidation but it's a new era."

He told Good Morning Scotland that social distancing measures were in place and more areas of the zoo such as cafes would reopen as time went on.
