The Queen guitarist Brian May will address a public meeting in Taunton tonight about the planned badger cull in Gloucestershire and Somerset. The cull - an attempt to stop badgers passing TB to cattle - is due to start in two months' time.
Brian May has been one of the cull's most prominent opponents. He has created an e-petition urging the government to abandon it.
