The Kent Police and Crime Commissioner has written an open letter to the the Force's Chief Constable seeking reassurance about how protests against live animal exports are policed.

Ann Barnes says the letter system will be used on issues which have a high degree of public interest.

It follows several protests at the port of Ramsgate after live animals were allowed to be transported through there last year.

Ann Barnes says the letter does n't imply any wrong doing by Kent Police and she is taking the action on the basis of significant public interest.
