CHESTER Zoo's elephant house will be closed at some points throughout the weekend.

The zoo's team spotted "a small anomaly" in one of the calf’s regular EEHV health screenings.

A spokesman said: "One-year-old calf Anjan Hi Way appears completely fit and well, and is interacting playfully with the rest of the herd, as normal.

"Keepers and veterinary teams are giving Anjan immune boosting drugs, just as a precautionary measure.

"The elephant house will be closed for small periods throughout the weekend to give Anjan and the herd some quiet time while the team give him his treatment.

"We apologise for any inconvenience while the house is closed. At all other times, the herd will be outside in their habitat as usual."
