Birdwatchers capture illegal fox hunting in Nottinghamshire

Three people have been fined for illegal hunting after their actions were recorded by birdwatchers.

Paul Larby, 58, Peter White, 57, and Jane Wright, 63, of the Grove and Rufford Hunt, insisted their dogs were on a trail when they stumbled on a fox.

But the footage, taken at Laneham, Nottinghamshire, in January 2016, showed no attempt to call the hounds off.

All were convicted at Mansfield Magistrates' Court of hunting a mammal with dogs.
