A major search is underway after an owl escaped at the Cornish Birds of Prey Centre.

The team has shared a post on social media, after its Bengal, Zig, got away.

It comes after strong winds blew down the side of one of the aviaries overnight.

Staff are currently out looking for the bird, but say they have had no sightings so far.

You can contact the centre at Winnards Perch, St Columb, on 01637 880544 or via their website, here.
