MP wants tough line on extremists
An MP has called for a tough line against animal rights extremists that use violent methods.

Dr Ian Gibson, Norwich North MP and a member of the Commons Science and Technology committee claims there is often no way to negotiate with them.

"Whether or not these people do care about animals I have my suspicions.

"The Government ought to be doing much, much more about alternatives but I do not think you can argue with people who intimidate and use violent methods."
