Police investigating allegations of animal cruelty at a Herefordshire kennel have arrested two more people.

A 53-year-old woman from Abergavenny and a 45-year-old man from Powys were arrested earlier this month, West Mercia Police confirmed.

It follows the arrest of three people in June over alleged animal cruelty at South Herefordshire Hunt.

Police are examining footage from anti-hunt activists appearing to show foxes taken to the site to be killed.
