Baby giraffe 'is so cute'

A baby giraffe has been born at South Lakes Wild Animal Park.

Belle is the first West African Giraffe to be born in the UK. They're endangered as there are only around 450 in the world and a handful in captivity.

She has a French Mum and will move on from South Cumbria when she's old enough.

Bosses at the park hope she'll encourage more people to visit and support its conservation work, and it seems to be working. Her fan's are growing in number by the minute.
