A zoo spokesperson told sourced:
‘We managed an incident on site’.
Eyewitness Brad Evans told BBC Radio London:
‘We were in the zoo for the day, having a cup of coffee in the main restaurant area when they locked us all in and said there was an incident.
‘They gave us free teas and coffees and obviously we were asking what was going on and they told us that a gorilla had got out of its enclosure and that we weren’t allowed out of the park at half-five so we had to wait.
‘As we were waiting we saw the police turning up in numbers with loads of guns.’
