Bats may save Bowstring Bridge

From today's Leicester Mercury:

Experts are to study Leicester's Bowstring Bridge before its planned demolition next month to ensure no protected wildlife lives on or around it.

People have claimed to have seen bats around the Duns Lane bridge and its arches, which could cause delays for Leicester City Council.

When any structure is due to be demolished, an expert must inspect the site to ensure no endangered species are there, because it is illegal to disturb or hurt them.

A bat comments exclusively for Liberal England:

Frankly, I found that a disappointment. Couldn't hear a thing.

Now read more on the bridge.

I climbed the wall and found the wild plants and butterflies amongst the graffiti all very surreal.
