Forest of Dean wild boar charge warning for walkers

The Forestry Commission has urged walkers to take care in the Forest of Dean after a woman was charged by a wild boar.

Alison Bluett was out with her dogs near Cinderford when she came across a large sow.

Ms Bluett's dogs began barking and the sow charged straight towards the group.

It was only then that Ms Bluett noticed the sow had young with her.
