The cub broke out of her enclosure on Sunday afternoon.

A Red Panda which escaped from Belfast Zoo has been located.

The animal, named Amber, went missing yesterday, triggering a search in Glengormley where the zoo is located.

The PSNI had warned the public not to approach or attempt to capture Amber, as Red Pandas can be defensive when cornered.

Belfast Zoo tweeted this morning to say that the cub, who was born in June, had been found.

The BBC reports that Amber was discovered in a garden less than a mile from the zoo.

A power fault is being blamed for the escape.
