OXFORDSHIRE Badger Group is set to hold a final protest at Seacourt Park and Ride today against plans to expand the car park.

The wildlife campaigners are holding a 'wake' for residents, groups and politicians who oppose the 'flawed project' to mourn the loss of badgers which otherwise could have lived on the green field.

The demonstrators, including one in a badger suit, will gather at the Botley Road car park from 5pm to 6pm tonight.

Oxford City Council is starting work to clear the field for the 40-week expansion project on Wednesday.
