Seven charged after hunt clashes
Seven people have been charged with violent disorder after police in East Sussex were called to an incident involving anti-hunt protesters.

Clashes with hunt supporters were reported on farmland in the Broad Oak area, near Heathfield, on Tuesday.

One male member of the hunt who suffered a fractured skull is in a serious but stable condition at a neurological unit in Haywards Heath.

The five men and two women, from Herts and London, are on conditional bail.

They are aged between 20 and 34 and are now due to appear at Hastings Magistrates' Court on 28 February.
