Slow worms moved during work on new Bristol estate

Around 100 slow worms and other animals have been rehomed in Bristol during building work on a new estate.

Jephson Homes Housing Association moved the creatures as part of work to build a £5.2m development in Shirehampton.

The association is building 32 homes at a disused allotment site in Myrtle Drive, after receiving a £1.9m grant from the Homes and Communities Agency.

Surveys revealed the area contained protected species including slow worms, breeding birds, badgers and bats.
