Badger Cull | Judicial Review

"What you need to show in a judicial review process - which is what makes it so difficult to overturn government policy - is that they've actually done something wrong..." The Badger Cull is the biggest planned public funded intervention in the British countryside in the past 50 years. It's licenced by Natural England, the government's adviser for the natural environment in England, but highly experienced ecologist Tom Langton, working with Dominic Woodfield,has taken out two Judicial reviews against Natural England which questions the processes the public body followed in setting up the cull. Charlie Moores talked with Dominic Dyer, Chief-executive of Badger Trust, about the review and the impact of the cull on the wider countryside.
