Arrests after dog racing protest
Two animal rights campaigners were arrested after a protest outside a greyhound racing arena in Somerset.

Police were called to the Abbey Moor stadium in Glastonbury on Tuesday after reports of attacks on a campaigner.

Gina Harris, spokeswoman for Avon & Somerset Greyhound Action, said she had been hit by a dog trainer and protest boards were thrown in a nearby river.

Two campaigners who were arrested on public order offences were later released without charge.

The Avon & Somerset Greyhound Action campaigners had been distributing leaflets urging people to boycott greyhound racing.
