A council has splashed out £190 000 on building a bridge designed to help dormice cross the road safely.
The high wire style walkways were built across a busy new 4.6 mile road in the Rhondda Valley so the construction didn't upset the local rodent population. Three interconnecting tubes suspended from 20ft wooden poles are said to offer dormice a way of crossing the road where they would have once used trees.
I'm sure the mice are well chuffed but at what price? Madness.
