Chris Packham says overgrazing is killing the New Forest

TV presenter and naturalist Chris Packham has called for fewer animals to be allowed to roam the New Forest.

He claims if nothing is done the national park will be left "bereft of life" due to overgrazing.

Natural England said it has spent the past six years assessing the habitats and "it would not be possible or desirable to set a target number" of animals.
