Dartmoor ponies trial: Reflective paint put on animals

Reflective paint, which could "save hundreds" of Dartmoor's livestock from being killed by vehicles, has been put on ponies after an initial trial was deemed a success.

In September, blue paint was placed on privately-owned ponies to see how durable it was.

Conservationists said it had remained on the animals and the reflective element has since been added.

They said 74 animals have been killed so far this year on Dartmoor's roads.
