Stolen monkey and her babies 'doing well'

A very rare monkey stolen from Blackpool Zoo has given birth to twins.

Mamma, a Cotton-top Tamarin, was one of five monkeys taken back in April.

Four of them were returned after an appeal by police but her baby was never found.

Keepers at the zoo believe Mamma was pregnant when she was stolen, but despite the traumatic experience, both mother and babies are doing well.
