Caution: Toads crossing in Gloucestershire


Now spring has sprung - finally - which means that creatures are coming out of their long winter sleep ready to breed.

For toads in a corner of Gloucestershire the path to true love is fraught with danger - well, some busy roads anyway.

But thanks to local conservationist Daphne Neville they're all making it safely to the lake where they breed.

BBC Points West's Gloucestershire reporter, Steve Knibbs, has been to Frampton Mansell near Stroud to meet her and the toads.
