Business booming for mole catcher

A mole catcher's workload has doubled in a year, thanks to months of wet weather.

Damp conditions bring worms to the surface of the soil and the moles follow their food, creating new molehills on the way.

The moles' efforts have prevented horse owner Selina Westcott growing hay on her 16 acres of land on the Norfolk/Suffolk border.

This report contains pictures of moles being trapped.
