A critically endangered beetle has been spotted in Cambridgeshire for the first time in more than 40 years.

The 9mm (0.35in) iridescent tansy beetle was found during a ditch survey at the Woodwalton Fen National Nature Reserve, near Huntingdon.

Dr Peter Kirby, who found the beetle, said its first appearance in the county since 1973 was "quite the mystery".
