A record number of badgers has been vaccinated against bovine tuberculosis (bTB) this year, according to the Cornwall Wildlife Trust (CWT).

A total of 251 badgers have been vaccinated in Cornwall so far in 2022.

The trust, working with farmers and the Zoological Society of London (ZSL), hopes to expand the programme across more of Cornwall in the future.

The government said its strategy for eradicating bTB included the expansion of badger vaccination projects.

Last month it announced new culling licences, including two in Cornwall, but said it does not plan to issue any more in the future as part of its long-term plan.

Emma Ead is a farmer near St Stephen and has been part of the mid-Cornwall vaccination programme for four years.

Her farm previously lost about 25 cattle to bTB over three years, which she called heart-breaking.

She said: Since the vaccinations started four years ago, we have been clear of TB. They trapped seven last year and they also tested the badger's blood, and all those came back negative for TB, so hopefully now they have been vaccinated they won't get it.
