Part of a castle was temporarily shut after a critter caused havoc.

Visitors were told that the cellar tunnel of Craignethan Castle was closed after a badger refused to leave, reported the Daily Record. Historic Scotland said: “If you’re heading to Craignethan Castle over the next few days you might find the Cellar Tunnel closed due to the presence of a very angry badger.

“We’re trying to entice it out with cat food and send it home to chill out.”

The badger caused a mess, digging up through soil into stonework, and staff had to clear away the rubble.
