The ginger/red badger, whose colour is known as erythristic, is the first of its kind to be vaccinated in the county.

These badgers are not a different species but a sort of halfway stage from a normal coloured badger and a fully albino badger with pink eyes.

Hundreds of people are expected to take part in a protest against the badger cull today.

The cull is aimed at stopping the spread of the TB disease to cattle but speakers from The Badger Trust at the event tomorrow say a cull is very expensive and could lead to more cases of TB being recorded.
