Flag-waving Elephants join Olympic torch relay
Elephants at the West Midlands Safari Park performed a "trunk salute" for the Olympic torch after it made a stop there on board a steam train.
The Worcestershire Express, from the Severn Valley Railway, stopped at the park in Bewdley on day six of the torch relay.
The two female African elephants, 20-year-old Five and Latabe, 19, also waved a Union Jack to mark the occasion.
The BBC's Phil Makie and Bob Lawrence, head warden at the West Midlands Safari Park, describe the event.
