Badger cull: Queen's Brian May on sett in his garden

Rock star Brian May said badgers were cute and special to him as he explained about the sett in his garden and the family of animals he helped to feed.

He spoke against the badger cull in England - postponed on Tuesday by Environment Secretary Owen Paterson - saying it was "scientifically unsound" and a "monstrous" thing to do.

The Queen musician said Wales had taken the "enlightened path" of vaccinating its badgers, and he also backed the calls for the vaccination of cattle to stop the spread of bovine TB.
