Five people are to be charged with animal cruelty offences after the BBC broadcast pictures appearing to show fox cubs being taken into a kennel of hunting hounds.

The police investigation began after anti-hunting activists installed hidden cameras at the South Herefordshire Hunt kennels in 2016.

The video appears to show a man then dumping a dead fox cub in a bin.

The activists say the cubs were used to give hounds a taste for killing.

Campaigners had been expected to protest outside a police station about how long the investigation was taking later this week.
