France has banned the breeding in captivity of dolphins and killer whales, in a move hailed by campaigners as a major victory.

The government also banned the keeping of all whales, dolphins and porpoises in captivity, except for orcas and bottlenose dolphins already held.

The association of French zoos complained they had not been consulted on the ban.

But animal rights activists said it was a "historic French advance".
