Beavers are set to be reintroduced into the wild in Cornwall as part of a radical plan to reduce flooding.

After being hunted to extinction several hundred years ago, Cornwall Wildlife Trust and local farmers Chris and Janet Jones from Woodland Valley Farm are bringing Eurasian beavers back to the county.

The project intends to show that beavers can help create new wildlife habitat, make our streams cleaner and crucially reduce flooding.

The proposed site is a specially fenced area upstream of Ladock village, just outside Truro, which has suffered from severe flooding in recent years.
