Exmoor National Park is Europe's first dark sky reserve

The night sky above Exmoor National Park has been awarded a special protection status.

It has been granted International Dark-Sky Reserve (IDR) status by the International Dark-Sky Association.

The status means the night-sky is protected and lighting controls are in place to prevent light pollution.

Andrew Plant reports.
