A hare-raising experience...

Check out this amazing footage showing a chance encounter with one of Britain's most beautiful - and normally shy - wild creatures.

It was captured by one of our own producers as she took a walk in the summer sunshine on the Somerset Levels.

Incredibly, after viewing it from afar the curious animal hopped up to do some investigation of its own, before making its way off into the distance.

This video clip shows water spilling out of the River Tone into Currymoor on the Somerset Levels.

Up to 14 million cubic metres of water can be stored on the moor and pumped back into the river when the level drops.
