Nearly two tons of elephant ivory has been shipped into Britain over the past decade by hunters exploiting a legal loophole to bring back tusks as trophies of their controversial kills.

A shocking 729 elephant tusks and body parts are among the gruesome catalogue, including 400 trophies from the world’s most endangered species.

The animals are slaughtered by hunters who spend tens of thousands of pounds on safari expeditions.
