Badgers fight back in High Leicestershire

From the Leicester Mercury:
Badgers have been blamed for forcing the closure of a country lane by tunnelling underneath it, causing it to collapse.
Two large craters appeared in the surface of the 1.5 mile lane between Somerby and the hamlet of Newbold, making it impassable to most vehicles.
Highways engineers examined the damage on Friday and say the road will be shut for at least three weeks.
One theory is that the badgers had been told David Heath would be passing that way.
