Engineers at Fleetwood Trawlers solved a jumbo problem for Blackpool Zoo's Asian elephant, Crumple, who has had a specially designed protective boot made for her.

It was discovered that four ton Crumple, who is 39, had been experiencing mobility problems which turned out to be due to an arthritic hip.

Fleetwood Trawlers were contacted for their help to take pressure off her foot and after one unsuitable boot, Crumple is now wearing her designer footwear.

Since Crumple has been wearing the boot there has been a noticeable improvement in her mobility.
