MEMBERS of Tewkesbury Borough Council rejected the following motion at their council meeting last night, Monday.

“This council recognises that Bovine TB is a terrible disease affecting a number of different animal species.

“This council agrees that Bovine TB needs to be eradicated but that, until a viable, deployable and effective vaccine for both badgers and cattle is available, a cull should proceed”.

As a result, the council says it has no official position relating to the badger cull.
