P. 69

Mrs Weston was in her garden, paddling in flood water when she heard the telephone ringing. She went indoors, picked up the phone and struggled to hear the person speaking. Outside, in the lane, men from the water board were trying to stem the flow of water from a burst water main. A generator was clanking and grinding close to the front door of the cottage.
The caller was Mr Sturgess from the Rescue Centre. He told her that the badger was going to be released on Saturday in the meadow, close to Barns Wood, at dusk. He suggested a quiet release and a night vision camera to record the event.
'What about the children at school?' asked Mrs Weston. 'They will be so disappointed not to attend.'
