Now It's Our Worms!

The British earthworm is under siege from invading European worms.   These foreign species have recently been found in the New Forest and are ousting our native worms, who are less able to withstand the drier conditions we are apparently experiencing.   Two new non-native species have also been found at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew.   The Natural History Museum has said that foreign worms could have a effect on British flora and fauna, and pose a serious threat in the future.

Is there no end to it?!
