Last year's wet summer, followed by one of the warmest winters on record, has helped to create a generation of sleepless slugs, wildlife experts have warned.
The weather has not been cold enough in recent months to send the creatures into hibernation.
Conservation charity Bug Life said Britons could start to a see a slug population "explosion".
This could cause "devastation for our gardens", it warned.

Slugs stay active when temperatures remain above 5C (41F).
Because of the warm winter, slugs have not gone into hibernation and have been eating and and breeding through the winter months.

Hedgehogs used to get rid of slugs for me, but they are a rare creature now thanks to the decimation of their habitat.
