Protest over Yorkshire beagle breeding expansion plans

A protest has been held against plans to extend an East Yorkshire beagle breeding facility to provide dogs for animal experiments.

B&K Universal was refused planning permission in June to redvelop its facilities in Grimstone and has now appealed to the planning inspectorate.

East Riding Council said concerns over the traffic were behind the refusal.

Campaigners gathered in Beverley over the firm's continued bid to get the go-ahead for plans.

The protest took place outside County Hall with people able to sign a letter of opposition.
