Hunt move causes controversy
Hounds
Residents are worried about smells and noise from the animals
Residents living near a disused farm in Rutland say they have been kept in the dark about a plan to move the Cottesmore Hunt into the buildings.

People in Ashwell say they are concerned proposals for the kennels may be too far advanced, after the county council initially failed to consult them.

The Cottesmore Hunt has had kennels in Ashwell for more than a hundred years.

Residents are contesting a proposed move to the other side of the village, saying it would draw unwanted traffic, noise and smells.

Rutland County Council says consultation was not initially carried out because the farm was thought to be too far from the village.

A second consultation is taking place and the proposal is likely to be discussed by councillors in October.
