Two giant pandas arrived in Belgium on a 15-year loan on Sunday, and were personally welcomed by the Prime Minister.

The male and female pair, Xing Hui and Hao Hao, meaning 'Twinkling star' and 'Cute' appeared relaxed and happy after their 12 hour journey from China.

School children and panda fans were at Brussels airport to cheer as they arrived.

The pandas will live at Pairi Daiza, a wildlife park about 50 km (30 miles) southwest of Brussels.
