West Runton 'mammoth walks on Norfolk coast'

13 August 2014 Last updated at 19:24 BST

A life-size replica of a "mammoth" that last walked on the Norfolk coast more than 700,000 years ago has taken its first "steps".

The 4m (13ft) plywood recreation is modelled on the remains of a giant elephant that was discovered on West Runton beach in 1990.

The skeleton, one of the most complete ever discovered, was found after coastal erosion exposed a pelvis bone.

Four people helped "walk" the structure along the beach.
