A row has broken out over plans to cull a herd of deer at the Sellafield nuclear site.

The deer have become trapped in woodland between the perimeter fence and a new security fence that has recently been installed.

Sellafield says it has been advised by national experts at the Deer Initiative Partnership that killing the animals is the most humane option.

However, some local people and environmental campaigners want them to be saved.
