Counselling offered over hunt ban
Counselling is being offered to people in Warwickshire who are affected by the ban on hunting.

The Rev Gordon Gatwood, from the Arthur Rank Centre in Stoneleigh, said that whatever people's views on the subject, he was available to offer support.

There are concerns that the new regulations on blood sports could trigger job losses in rural areas.

Mr Gatwood is chairman of the Farm Crisis Network, which offers support on the helpline number 07002 326326.

Hundreds of Warwickshire hunt supporters turned out on Saturday in defiance of the ban.

Police said all the events in the county passed without incident.
