Badger cull halted after appeal

A controversial cull of around 1,500 badgers in south-west Wales has been halted after protesters won their legal challenge at the Court of Appeal to stop it.

The Badger Trust appealed against Welsh Assembly Government plans for a trial cull to reduce TB within cattle.

The trust had questioned the cull's effectiveness, though farmers losing diseased stock wanted action.
