Mike Dilger goes out after dark in search of Leicester's secret night time wildlife.

Badgers, bats and otters are just some of the creatures that can be found in the city's nocturnal streets, skies and waterways.

'Night owl' Mike Dilger grabbed his torch and set off to find this urban wildlife with the help of some local Leicester wildlife watchers.

Urban Jungle is broadcast on Thursday, 1 August at 19:00 BST on BBC One East Midlands and on the iPlayer for seven days thereafter.
