Protesters have gathered at Dover in Kent, as the French ship 'Joline' arrives for berthing trials. The vessel's crew are testing the feasibility of returning the live animal exports trade to the port.
Campaigners against animal exports are due to gather at Dover docks to protest against the trade. The ship, the Joline, is expected to arrive there to take part in berthing trials ahead of plans to resume animal exports from Dover.
There was earlier controversy when the ship was involved in animal exports to the continent from Ramsgate.
