The eastern region has some of the worst roads for deer-related accidents.

There are around 200 car accidents a day around the UK involving deer and costs in insurance claims amount to more than 20m a year.

Two of the worst roads are the A14 through Suffolk and Cambridgeshire and the A11 between London and Norwich.
