Sir David Attenborough has agreed that humans are victims of their own success, as he faced questions about the coronavirus pandemic.

In an interview with the BBC's Andrew Marr, the environmentalist and veteran TV broadcaster said: “Anybody who knows anything about keeping animals of any kind, the more dense population you keep, the quicker the disease will spread.

"And there's never been a denser population of human species until this moment.”

When asked whether humans were victims of their own success, he replied: "Certainly."
