Tunnel helps otters cross A438 road safely

A tunnel under a busy road in Herefordshire is helping the local otter population cross safely.

Signs have also been put on the A438 at Stretton Sugwas warning motorists of the presence of otters.

The tunnel was built as part of the Yazor Brook flood defences.

Each year more than 400 otters are killed on roads in the UK.
