Work has begun to repair a country path in Norfolk which was at risk of collapsing - because of badgers.

The animals dug a network of tunnels under a stretch of Marriott's Way at Whitwell, near Reepham.

Because of the danger to walkers, cyclists and horse riders, a 300m section of the track had to be closed two years ago by the county council.
