Conchita is only the second white-naped mangabey to be born in the UK.

Because of complications at the birth the three-weeks-old monkey is being raised by zookeeper Andrea Payne.

Rearing the monkey is a 24-hour job for Andrew involving twice hourly bottle feeds and regular weight checks. A suitably sized teddy bear has been found to act as a comfort figure.
