Protection? Shove it.

Doing the right thing doesn't come cheap. Pallet network Pall-Ex called in the RSPCA when it found a badgers' set on the site of its Leicester distribution hub.

Work to the site, due to open a few weeks later, was disrupted for a week while a new home was built for this member of the protected species and RSPCA officers tried to acclimatise him with a variety of contraptions.

It was, however, all to no avail, said marketing director Chris Martin. The badger did an immediate runner from his new set, choosing to make his home down the road in an old drain.
