Fight to save gardens from Spanish slugs

Scientists in Norwich are fighting to save our gardens from a new predator, the Spanish Slug.

The Anglia region first came under attack earlier this year and experts say it poses more of a threat to our plants than our own native slug species.

A website has been set up called "Slug Watch" so people can record their slug sightings. It's hoped it will help scientists discover more about these creatures.
