Protesters hurled abuse at drivers and jostled with police as live animal exports resumed at a Kent port this morning. Seven trucks carrying sheep en route to the Continent passed through Ramsgate after a group of Dutch exporters won a court order overturning a ban on shipments.
About 100 animal rights campaigners gathered at the gates, at one point surrounding one of the lorry cabs as it tried to leave.
