Two baby beavers filmed in Cropton Forest

Two baby beavers have been born to parents who were introduced to North Yorkshire as part of an environmental trial.

The babies - known as kits - were born to the Eurasian beavers, which were moved in April from Scotland to Cropton Forest in the North York Moors.

The five-year trial is monitoring the impact of the beavers' activity on artificial dams that were installed to slow water flow and reduce flooding.
