Elephant parade to highlight extinction threat


Brace yourself for a giant elephant parade later this year.

London's major landmarks are set to be taken over by a herd of them - life-sized and designed by leading artists along with the capital's schoolchildren.

The move, billed as London's largest public art exhibition, is aimed at raising awareness of the Asian elephant, which is close to extinction.

Marc Ashdown visits one school in the capital where preparations for the May event have already begun.
