A critically endangered gorilla has travelled to London Zoo on a first-class flight from Tenerife.

The 18-year-old, 193kg silverback named Kiburi was delivered by DHL Express for an international breeding programme.

The 5ft 4ft (165cm) tall primate will join the zoo's current troop - females Mjukuu and Effie and youngsters Alika and Gernot - in their Kingdom home.

He enjoyed an in-flight meal of greens, leeks and bananas, keeper Glynn Hennessy said.

He added: After spending his first few days at London Zoo settling into his new digs behind-the-scenes, Kiburi today ventured into the troop's indoor play-gym for the first time, where he enjoyed a breakfast of juicy red peppers and tested out the area's new rope swings - a housewarming gift from the ZSL team.
