Conservationists have discovered that previously unknown populations of Scottish wildcats are living in the Cairngorms National Park.

The new pockets of habitation have been identified by camera traps which captured images of the animals across the park and beyond.

However, scientists warn the species remains under threat because of cross-breeding with domestic and feral cats.
