And finally… law of the jungle

Three suspected poachers were eaten by lions after their plan to break into a game reserve and hunt rhino apparently went awry.

The armed men broke into the Sibuya Game Reserve in South Africa but encountered its pride of lions and were found in pieces.

Nick Fox, owner of the reserve, said staff were “not sure how many there were - there’s not much left of them”.

He added: “I think we had a stroke of luck here that the lions got to them before they got to the rhinos. We lost three rhino in March 2016.”

The reserve remains open to the public in spite of the incident.
