Bath has to get used to seeing its once green-covered railway embankments stripped of vegetation.

It’s part of the price that has to be paid for electrification of the Great Western line between London and Bristol.

The wire mesh has been laid to stop rabbits burrowing. Too big a warren could mean a collapse of the track above and a possible train derailment.

Low lying vegetation will grow through and cover the mesh mesh l am told. Hopefully, no rabbits left in old burrows.
