Two beavers are on the run after escaping from an enclosure on a rewilding project.

The Eurasian beavers, Woody and Twiggy, were introduced to Mapperton Estate in west Dorset last year under licence from Natural England.

The estate said recent storms had damaged fencing around their enclosure and the creatures had disappeared.

Estate staff, with the help of Dorset Wildlife Trust, are working to find and trap the pair so they can be returned.
