Bristol man charged over Ledbury badger incident

A man from the Bristol area has been charged with common assault and aggravated trespass by officers policing the badger cull.

Culling is taking place in two areas - west Somerset and west Gloucestershire - for a second year.

The 30-year-old was detained following an incident at a farm in Bromsberrow Heath, near Ledbury on the Herefordshire-Gloucestershire border.

He has been bailed to appear before Cheltenham magistrates on 23 October.
