Hundreds go ape for Gorilla Run

Hundreds of people have taken to the streets of east London dressed as gorillas to raise money for charity.

About 750 runners joined in the sixth annual 7km Great Gorilla Run, which is thought to be a world record for the largest gathering of people wearing gorilla costumes.

The event was staged by The Gorilla Organisation, a charity which protects the endangered species in central African rainforests.
