Search for wild boar continues

Some 16 potentially dangerous wild boar were still on the loose in the countryside around Bridport on Thursday.

They are part of a herd of 30 which escaped from Mapperton Farm at the weekend.

One has already been shot after it charged a woman who had to fight it off with a pitchfork.
