Hundreds of gorillas were spotted running through the streets of London at the weekend.

At least 600 people wearing gorilla masks and suits were taking part in the Great Gorilla Run.

The 7km (4.3 miles) charity race started seven years ago to raise cash to help save the endangered primates.

By November, when sponsorship for the race ends, it's thought this year's runners will have raised £250,000.
