Head vet Sarah Chapman said: "Immediately after the birth, we could see the calf wasn't moving.

"It's common for elephants to nudge a newborn to help it rise to its feet to suckle. However, when all three elephants backed away we knew something was wrong.

"The keepers and vet team rushed into the enclosure and worked on trying to bring life into the calf for almost an hour.

"Once we reached a point when we knew there was nothing more we could do, we placed the calf back in front of the elephants.
