A decision is due on the fate of wild beavers living on the River Otter in Devon.

A widow from Devon has hired out an entire pub so fifty strangers in her village wouldn't have to eat Christmas dinner alone.
86 year old Betty Williams from Ottery St Mary paid for a slap up meal this lunchtime for a massive crowd of people she doesn't know who would otherwise spend the festive period by themselves.
Betty reserved every table at the Lamb and Flag pub and footed the bill for the traditional turkey dinners and bottles of wine.
The pensioner lost her husband twelve years ago and has found herself alone over the Christmas period in recent years due to a lack of close family living nearby.
This year, determined not to eat by herself and moved by Britain's food bank explosion, she contacted the mayor of Ottery St Mary Cllr Glyn Dobson, to organise a festive lunch.
Councillor Dobson decided to make a bit more of an event out of the day, and organised for the town crier and the local choir to attend.

Environment Secretary Caroline Spelman visited the region today to look at some of the places affected by yesterday's floods.
Ottery St Mary, near Exeter, saw some of its main roads turn into rivers after a month's worth of rain fell in just 24 hours.
The town has seen previous devastating floods and has since had a number of flood defences put in place.
Ms Spelman talked to people about how effective these measures were during Saturday's heavy rain.
