Could this be the end of the British beach donkey ride?

More than 5,000 people have signed a petition protesting against a council's decision to scrap donkey rides in Paignton in Devon.

The council have re-tendered what's called the "mobile attraction" in Paignton, which they gave to trampolines instead of donkeys.

BBC Radio 5 live Daily's Peter Allen spoke to Julie Whybrow who has been providing donkey rides on Paignton Green for the last 15 years.

She said: "we're hoping to change the councils mind, we've put out a petition, which has gone mad on Facebook. We want to change their minds, so that we can get back on Paignton green."
