A rare leopard cub has been born at a Hampshire zoo.

It is estimated there may be as few as 35 Amur leopards left in the wild and they are listed as critically endangered.

Marc Fox, of Marwell Zoo, near Winchester, said he hoped the breeding programme would mean some endangered leopards would eventually be released back into the wild.
