Teeth and bones from late Ice Age animals, including hyenas, deer and woolly rhinos, have been discovered by archaeologists at a cave in Devon.

The dig at Kents Cavern, Torquay, also unearthed a 15,000-year-old spearpoint, known as a "sagaie", which is made from reindeer antler from the same era.

The spearpoint is thought to be the first complete one found in the UK.

The dig, organised by the University of Durham and the University of Sheffield, is part of a study into Neanderthals.
