The first tiger cub to be born at London Zoo for 17 years has died. The cub was discovered on the edge of the pool inside the tigers' enclosure. Five-year-old Sumatran tiger Melati gave birth to the cub two weeks ago, with the event captured on hidden cameras in the den.
Keepers at London Zoo raised the alarm in the early hours of Saturday morning after they noticed that they could not see the cub on the den cameras. The zoo spokeswoman said a post-mortem examination carried out on Sunday confirmed the cub had drowned
