Two men are to appear in court over the dumping of animal carcasses in Brighton during the Labour Party Conference.

Stuart Trousdale, 33, of Gatcombe, and Jamie Butcher, 39, of Ashley Road, Ryde, both on the Isle of Wight, were charged by police on Wednesday.

They are accused of a public order offence and are due to appear before Brighton magistrates next Tuesday.

A dead horse and two dead cows were found dumped in the city as hunt supporters protested at the conference.
