The Howletts Wild Animal Park in Canterbury is celebrating the arrival of a new Langur.

It's the fifth to be born since the family of monkeys moved into the park in 2010.

The new addition was born to mother, Grubb and father, Sam.

Although, first time mother Grubb is still very protective of her new born, now is the best time for visitors to spot the baby as when they are little they are bright orange in colour, which is a vast contrast to the other black furred langurs.
