Protest plan over circus animals
A group of animal activists say they will protest outside a circus in Grimsby which features live animals.

The demonstration, on Tuesday night, comes as local MP Shona McIsaac joins a Parliamentary debate urging a ban.

Animal Defenders International are to demonstrate at the Great British Circus's visit to Laceby Road, Grimsby.

The circus says: "We have 100% confidence in our husbandry and provide our animals with the best nutrition, accommodation and veterinary care."

Among the animals touring with them are lions, tigers and llamas.
