Man cautioned after protestor hit
A man was arrested by police after an animal rights protestor was hit during a demonstration at a circus which has the last performing bear in the UK.

Members of Manchester Animal Protection demonstrated at Peter Jolly's circus when it pitched up in Blackrod, Bolton.

A 28-year-old circus worker was cautioned for common assault after a female protester was hit on Thursday.

Police were called to the site again on Sunday and a 20-year-old man was cautioned for a public order offence.
