Government plans for a badger cull in Gloucestershire and West Somerset suffered a blow today after MPs voted against the scheme.
The motion was passed by 147 votes to 28 but the government is not legally bound by it. The debate was triggered by an e-petition of more than 150,000 signatures.
The cull has already been delayed until next summer after it was discovered there were more of the animals than expected.
