The Shadow Environment Secretary has said that the badger cull will cost more money than it saves.
Mary Creagh said: "Bovine TB is a terrible disease, but culling badgers is not the way to tackle it.
"The government's own impact assessment shows that culling badgers will cost more than it saves because of the divisive costs of the policing and we know that culling badgers spreads bovine TB in the short term."
