Rare orangutan born at Chester Zoo

Keepers at Chester Zoo are celebrating a very special arrival which took place as amazed visitors looked on.

They were fortunate to witness the birth of a critically endangered Bornean orangutan.

Staff are still to discover if it's a boy or a girl, but the zoo says the birth is a huge boost to conserving the species which faces an uncertain future in the wild.
