London Zoo's penguins get an Olympic dive board

There was much excitement at London Zoo yesterday, as the attraction's penguins were presented with a new diving board inspired by the London Olympics, which is less four months away.

The new board even managed to ruffle the feathers of a few other birds, who flew in to find out what all the fuss was about - taking advantage of the penguins' distraction to steal a couple of fish!
