VEGAN businessman Dale Vince has been presented with a Golden Paw for his stance against badger culling.

Gloucestershire Against Badger Shooting group awarded the honour to the Ecotricity boss for his opposition to the government's now postponed plan.

The green electricity firm, which is based in Stroud, bans badger shooting on its land.

Mr Vince, who has condemned the cull aimed at eradicating tuberculosis among cattle, said: "If we truly have to virtually wipe the badger, just to produce milk from cows, then may be we should be questioning the basis of the dairy industry itself.

"After all, we don't need cows milk to live."
