Britain's only pair of giant pandas have been pictured in their new home at a sanctuary in China after a 5,000 mile journey.

Giant pandas Yang Guang (Sunshine) and Tian Tian (Sweetie) were in Edinburgh Zoo for 12 years until they flew to China yesterday.

They were pictured sitting at a table enjoying a meal with two other pandas in their new home in China. 

The pandas were a popular attract in Edinburgh Zoo and they will be sorely missed by regulars. 

The duo were boarded onto the 1.45pm flight to Beijing yesterday alongside crates of leaves after the 10-year agreement, which was extended by two years, ended between the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland (RZSS) and the China Wildlife Conservation Association.
