Animal testing demonstration in Manchester
Hundreds of campaigners have gathered in Manchester for a national protest against animal testing.
A rally was held in Whitworth Park, on Oxford Road at 1200 BST.
Demonstrators then marched along Oxford Road to Albert Square for a second rally, calling for an end to animal experiments.
As they passed the University of Manchester, they were due to stop for a short speech and a two minutes' silence.
The marchers were accompanied by dozens of police officers, on foot, in vehicles and motorbikes.
