Olympic torch: Elephants' flame-train 'salute'


Elephants at the West Midlands Safari Park are to do a "trunk salute" for the Olympic torch when it makes a stop there on board a steam train.

The Worcestershire Express, from the Severn Valley Railway, will stop at the park in Bewdley later on Thursday.

It will be met at about 16:00 BST by its two female African Elephants, 20-year-old Five and Latabe, 19.

BBC Midlands Today's Ian Winter went to meet them.
