ANIMAL rights activists staged a protest in Croxley Business Park today (Friday).

A group of protesters from Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC) staged the action outside Millipore's Hatters Lane offices.

They beat drums, blew on claxon horns and chanted "shame on Millipore, animal killers".

Millipore is an international firm which supplies products for research laboratories.

The protest group is against Huntingdon Life Sciences, which does carry out testing on animals.

Millipore supplies Huntingdon Life Sciences with testing equipment. Around ten protesters were there as were four Hertfordshire Constabulary Police Officers.
