Lowland gorilla born at Twycross Zoo

A Western Lowland gorilla has been born at Twycross Zoo in Leicestershire.

The gorillas are endangered with fewer than 100,000 of them the wild - bringing the species dangerously close to extinction.

The baby is being closely protected by its mother so its gender is not yet known.
