Kent's police chief criticised over animal export meeting pull-out

Kent's chief constable has been accused of treating campaigners against live animal exports with disdain after he pulled out of a meeting with them at short notice.

It was called after the police watchdog ruled the force had acted unfairly in the past in restricting protests at the Port of Ramsgate.

However, Alan Pughsley told protesters he needs to remain completely objective on the issue of policing the protests.

BBC South East Today's Simon Jones reports.
