The winners of the 2018 Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition have been revealed at a ceremony at the Natural History Museum in London.

Dutch photographer Marsel van Oosten has won the top prize for his stunning image of a pair of golden snub-nosed monkeys in China’s Qinling Mountains – the only habitat for these endangered primates.
