MPs are debating badger culling in Gloucestershire and Somerset following a leaked report about the effectiveness of the two pilot schemes.

Ahead of Thursday's debate, Adam Fleming spoke to Green MP Caroline Lucas who said the government must be called to account and other options must be explored.

Simon Hart, Conservative MP and former head of the Countryside Alliance, explained how farmers have been affected by TB, and how Ireland was better managing its "properly sustained and humane cull".
