Badgers 'moved goalposts' says minister Owen Paterson

The Environment Secretary Owen Paterson tells BBC Spotlight that the "badgers moved the goalposts" when asked why marksmen failed to reach a cull target.

A pilot badger cull in west Somerset may be extended by up to three weeks in an effort to make up the shortfall.

Mr Paterson was asked if he had "moved the goalposts" by claiming the cull was a success.
