Beaver spotted in Devon's River Otter by dog walker

16 July 2013 Last updated at 16:19 BST

A woman claims she has seen a beaver living wild on the River Otter in Devon.

Hunted for their fur, the animals were wiped out in Britain hundreds of years ago.

Three beavers escaped from a farm at Lifton in 2009. Only two were recaptured and it is believed the one that remained at large was responsible for felling trees several miles away.

Lorna Douglas has filmed the beaver, which she says she has seen on several occasions while walking her dogs.
