Scottish zoo fire 'not suspicious'

A fire at the Five Sisters Zoo in West Calder, West Lothian, has resulted in the death of an otter and all the animals in the reptile house, where the blaze began.

A pair of dwarf crocodiles were saved after they submerged themselves in a pond.

Firefighters say they are looking at the possibility that a heating system failed, but that there are no suspicious circumstances.

Catriona Renton reports.
