Ten rare species have been found for the first time at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in east London.

A survey discovered the park, opened in 2014, has become home to a range of rare plants and animals including the streaked bombardier beetle, black redstart and brown-banded carder bee.

Habitat installations were put in the 560 acre park when built, including 150 bat boxes and 525 bird boxes.

Park officials said they were thrilled the species found a home at the park.
