Kennet and Avon canal water voles captured on film

A new colony of water voles has been captured on film using hidden cameras at a canal lock in Wiltshire.

Ecologists from the Canal and River Trust spotted signs of the creatures during conservation works at the Caen Hill lock flight near Devizes.

Laura Plenty, from the trust, said: "We decided it was a fantastic place to test our heat and motion sensitive camera to catch them in the act."
