Members of the Amboseli Trust, an elephant research and conservation group, have attempted to rescue a baby elephant trapped in a water well in Kenya.

Before they could get anywhere near it they had to deal with the elephant's anxious mother, who was pacing around nearby. They moved her away so they could help the baby.

The trust's Vicki Fishlock gave a running commentary as the drama unfolded.
