Cheetah seized by Heathrow border staff

Usually it's drugs or fake goods being seized but border staff at Heathrow have seized a live cheetah.

It was heading to Russia from South Africa when staff realised international tags designed to tackle the trade in illegal animals were missing.

It's now being looked after at a wildlife park here.
