Conservationists are celebrating the birth of the world's rarest chimpanzee at Chester Zoo, saying it gives "hope" to the critically endangered species.

New mum ZeeZee, a critically endangered western chimpanzee, safely delivered the "precious" baby boy following an eight-month pregnancy.

The new male is in good health and has spent the first few weeks of life bonding with his mother and the rest of the 22-strong troop, according to the zoo.

He will be named after a rockstar or famous pop icon to help boost the profile of the highly threatened species, in what is a longstanding tradition among conservationists.
