Sheep at Ramsgate didn't have access to water

Hundreds of sheep being transported from Ramsgate to France didn't have access to drinking water according to the RSPCA because of a faulty pump on board their lorry.

Campaigners have been protesting against live animal exports from the Kent port which started last year.

It comes after more than a million people signed a petition campaigning for better conditions for livestock. It was handed in to the European Commission in Brussels today. The petition is calling for an 8 hour limit for livestock being transported across Europe.
