These are the first images of tiny tiger cubs whose birth at a British safari park is bringing fresh hope to an endangered species. <br />
<br />
The cute cubs are Amur or Siberian tigers, of which there are just 540 individuals left in the wild.<br />
<br />
The tiger births are the first at Longleat Safari Park in Wiltshire for nearly 20 years and are part of a European-wide breeding programme for the sub-species.
