Robingate - The Crisis Deepens

In another journalistic coup, the BBC Today programme revealed that permission to kill the robins had been granted by DEFRA. In an interview, Agriculture Minister Ben Bradshaw stated that similar permissions granted last year resulted in the deaths of six robins, a blackbird, a blue tit and a pied wagtail.

Local Thornbury Liberal Democrat MP Steve Webb will be asking questions in the Commons today.

Story is covered by BBC News, Telegraph and the Scotsman.
