Badgers and squirrels brought together to ease space problems in Bath
An online business has been launched to help people make money from space in their homes.
The launch of Storenextdoor.com follows the success of businesses which allow people to rent out their drives to motorists or their spare rooms to visitors.
The match-making website introduces householders or small businesses with spare space in their properties, known as badgers, to people who need short or long-term self-storage, known as squirrels.
Through the website, people with things to store can link with others in their neighbourhood who have storage space.

It is the idea of city entrepreneur Dom Moorhouse, along with business partners Dan Hilton and Rosie Bennett.
The site has been launched to coincide with Global Sharing Day, which took place yesterday.
Rosie said: "As well as being convenient and local, this personal linking often represents a significant saving over corporate alternatives.
"It also provides a welcome extra income stream for the space owner. Trust could be seen as a worry, but Storenextdoor.com have worked hard to build a professional site and service with member profiles, identity verifications, a secure payment system and legal contracts.
"So if you find yourself with spare space or need extra storage, sign up now."
The firm's contracts are backed by an insurance product which has been developed by Aviva.
It is free to sign up. Simply visit the firm's website at www.storenextdoor.com.
