Animal activists in city protest

Several hundred people have marched through Peterborough in protest at the work of Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS).

The Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC) group and supporters are taking part in the action.

Police said earlier that they had been working with SHAC, city centre businesses and HLS to minimise the impact of the protest on the public.

The action began at Stanley Recreation Park and developed into a march around the city centre.
