Appeal against beagle farm planning rejected

The High Court has ruled that plans to expand a beagle breeding farm in East Yorkshire can go ahead.

The facility already rears beagles for medical experiments but the company were given approval last year by the government to make it bigger in order to breed more dogs on site. 

B&K Universal say it'll improve animal welfare as they won't have to transport dogs to the site.

Cruelty Free International have campaigned against the plans for five years - they say it's a sad day for animals and anyone who shares their life with a dog.

BreakingAppeal against beagle farm lost

Natalie Glanvill

Reporter BBC Radio Humberside

An animal rights group has lost a judicial review against government approval for a firm in East Yorkshire to breed dogs for medical experiments. 

Cruelty Free International (CFI) challenged the decision in the High Court over planning permission for the B&K Universal site in Grimston. 

CFI claimed the decision violated EU law as the dogs would have no outdoor space. B&K Universal claimed outdoor access would expose the dogs to infections.

You might have heard speculation about the health of Hull City owner Assam Allam. 

Well his doctors say he's on the mend.

Here's what Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust told us:

"There has been a lot of speculation recently regarding Dr Assem Allam's wellbeing; much of it inaccurate. Following discussion with his consultant, Dr Allam has given us permission to reveal that he has had successful surgery following an illness and he is now making a steady recovery.

Three interested parties in talks over Hull City take over

David Burns

We're talking about potential buyers for Hull City FC this morning. 

As I understand it Peter Grieve, the former MD of Goldman Sachs is trying to buy the club.

A Hull City spokesperson won't confirm or deny speculation that he's behind a potential takeover bid.

Its also thought a Thai group are interested in the club and Adam Pearson the owner of Hull FC and former owner of Hull City could be interested, but its not clear if he's still in the running.

The Allams have allegedly been looking for a responsible buyer for the last two years... I think if they didn't sell I'd be concerned that Steve Bruce may not stay around and obviously there's that uncertainty."
