Several species of plant and wildlife in Dorset have become extinct.

That's what the findings of a ground breaking survey launched by Sir David Attenborough have revealed.

The survey also shows the large garden bumble bee has disappeared and there are only 20 pairs of tree sparrows remaining in the county.
