A herd of 14 elephants, who have made international headlines with their huge 500km (300-mile) trek across China, are finally on their way home.

More than 25,000 police officers using vehicles and drones have monitored the herd, state media report, after the protected animals left a nature reserve in Yunnan about 17 months ago.

They’ve been through fields, towns and cities, eating millions of dollars worth of crops and damaging buildings, over the course of their journey and now, more than 150,000 people are being evacuated to make way for them.
