THIS badger, flooded out of his tunnel in January, has finally gone home.

The brock was made homeless along with about 20 others when their sett, near Botley Road, West Oxford, was inundated.

They sought refuge in nearby gardens, and a resident called the RSPCA after spotting this badger in a disorientated state.

Now, after two months at Tiggywinkles animal sanctuary near Thame, where he saw a hygienist, had his teeth cleaned and was pampered and preened, he was released by RSPCA officer Dennis Lovell. Mr Lovell said: “It went really well. The moment we let him out he took off towards his sett. He was back.”
