Huntingdon in pictures
Huntingdon lives in the shadow of its more famous neighbour, Cambridge, but is a bustling market town in its own right .

It is surrounded by unspoilt rural pastures and picture-postcard English villages, strewn with thatched cottages and country pubs.

Flanked by the River Ouse, it is constituency territory of the former Prime Minister John Major, but is now probably better known as home to the controversial animal research laboratory, Huntingdon Life Sciences, which has become a magnet for animal rights protesters.
