With the holiday season upon us the Met's Wildlife Crime Unit, in partnership with animal welfare and wildlife charities, are appealing to Londoners to donate unwanted items made from elephant ivory and other endangered species to help stop the trade in its tracks.

The call for donations, which launches today, (Wednesday, 9 July) is supported by actor Ricky Gervais and will run across all London police stations until the end of the month.
