A gorilla was on the loose in London Zoo after escaping its enclosure but it's now been confirmed that the ape has been recaptured.

Staff armed with tranquilisers were patrolling the zoo trying to track down the ape, which reportedly smashed its way out of its enclosure.

Scotland Yard said in a statement it was called to the zoo, in Regent's Park, just after three o'clock this afternoon.

The zoo was on lockdown until around 6.20pm, when guards tracked down the gorilla. The animal was subdued with a tranquiliser dart.
