One of the drivers at work was telling me how his wing was once ripped off when he hit a weasel.

 

"how bloody big was this weasel?" I asked incredulously

The major analysis, held by the Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs, is being kept from the public despite requests for its release under transparency rules.
