Cranborne Middle School.
A school has been forced to cancel its sports day and ban children from its playing field after its attempts to control a plague of rabbits failed.
Cranborne Middle School got in a stew after the bothersome bunnies dug countless holes in the school playing field, with children tripping in the holes and hurting themselves.
Staff at the school in Dorset have worked with a landscaping company and gamekeepers from the Cranborne Estate to cull the colony using ferrets, gas and shooting in recent years, but say this year the rampant rabbits have multiplied more than ever.
