A public meeting will be held near Penrith tonight after the discovery of Bovine TB in badgers in east Cumbria.

The disease has affected cattle on 16 farms in the Penrith and Shap areas, in the last few years.

The government is trying to find out if the cases in badgers are linked to the outbreak in cattle.
