A third suspect has been arrested over allegations of cruelty to foxes at the South Herefordshire Hunt kennels.

An investigation was launched after police were sent footage obtained by anti-hunt protesters, allegedly showing foxes being kept at the kennels.

A 37-year-old man from Abergavenny is suspected of failing to prevent unnecessary suffering to an animal.

Another 37-year-old man and a 27 year-old woman, both from Hereford, were arrested on Friday.
