THE ONLY claim to fame I have is I am the guy that removed over 1,000 sand lizards from a building site called Brooks Pit, at Hamworthy.

Newspaper The Sun said about the removal, "People have to live some where".

I then followed it up to by removing another 800 from around Adastral Road as Poole in Dorset, went from having the largest sand lizard population in Europe down to all but zero so people could live somewhere.

If they carried on in other countries with the theory that people have to live somewhere there would by now be no wild animals left in the word to go and look at.
