Paignton Zoo displays Manu, the 'UK's only' kiwi bird

The UK's only flightless kiwi bird has been put on show to the public at a zoo in Devon.

The endangered bird, named Manu, has come to Paignton Zoo from Frankfurt Zoo in Germany.

Before the bird arrived local metal detectors were used to check the new enclosure for "potentially dangerous bits of metal", the zoo said.

The bird, which lives in the wild in New Zealand and probes the soil for food, is the country's national symbol.
