A rare endangered lemur has been born at a wildlife park on the Isle of Man following a "tragic" fire three months ago.

An enclosure which housed lemurs at Curraghs Wildlife Park was burnt to the ground on the 25th of April - four animals were rescued but two died.

The surviving pair have given birth and are now waiting to be housed in a new enclosure.

The baby lemur has been named Phoenix.
