Most men are happy receiving a good book or a nice bottle of whisky for their birthday.

But rather than an ordinary present, Boris Johnson gifted his father, Stanley, a group of beavers on his 80th birthday.

According to the Telegraph, the Prime Minister and his siblings clubbed together to get a licence to allow their father to have beavers in the river of his Exmoor estate.

The Prime Minister met with the UK's top rewilder, Derek Gow, to ensure the paperwork was arranged and the land suitably converted into a good beaver habitat.

Beavers were native to Britain before hunting drove them to extinction in the 16th century. Earlier this month, the Devon Wildlife Trust announced beavers could help prevent flooding and boost wildlife if released back into the wild.

However, the case for reintroduction is far from straightforward. Some farmers believe releasing new species back into the wild could damage their land and harm livestock.
