A number of barbary macaques are on the loose
A number of monkeys who escaped after being moved to a new enclosure at Edinburgh Zoo are still on the loose.
The barbary macaques, which are not said to pose a threat to humans, made their bid for freedom on Friday.
Zookeepers with nets are now trying to tempt the monkeys down from trees at the Corstorphine Hill site.
A zoo spokeswoman said some of the monkeys had been recaptured, but an undisclosed number were still free within the grounds of the zoo.
She said the escape had involved a small number of the barbary macaques.
"We are still open to visitors but we may have to close some pathways around the macaque enclosure and we ask for their understanding and co-operation with this matter," she added.
