Wild boar: Call for 'clearer' controls as numbers rise

A wildlife trust has called for "clearer" controls over wild boar as numbers rise.

Essex Wildlife Trust said more "definitive guidelines" were needed to manage the animal.

The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs said strict licensing laws were already in place.
