News Shopper was at London Zoo on Wednesday night, capturing these pictures and video of the awesome tigers there.

The after-hours event was held to promote the Zoological Society of London’s Christmas gifts, but the real thrill was access to the fabulous Tiger Territory.

The area is home to a family of beautiful Sumatran tigers - mum Melati, dad Jae Jae and three six-month-old cubs.

The parents and one of the babies were very obliging for the assembled journos with their cameras.

Although it was a surreal experience sipping mulled wine and listening to festive songs on a warm summer’s evening, it was wonderful to enjoy some close-up time with these creatures.

We’ll bring you details on the ZSL’s gift range when we do our Christmas guide later in the year. For now, enjoy these tiger images and footage.
