Fifteen families of beavers have been given the permanent "right to remain" on the River Otter in East Devon.
The decision was made by the government following a five-year study by the Devon Wildlife Trust into beavers' impact on the local environment.
The Trust called it "the most ground-breaking government decision for England's wildlife for a generation".
It's the first time an extinct native mammal has been given government backing to be reintroduced in England.

In 1826 the last beaver was killed in NL.
There was a reintroduction in 1988. They are doing very well. At first they spread very slowly.
But in 2019 they counted 3500 of them in my country. So they are thriving now.
