Live animal exports have resumed at Ramsgate - 18 months after they were banned by the local council.
Two lorries carrying sheep entered the Port this morning, greeted by protesters who oppose the transport of live animals to the continent. Exporters had switched operations to Dover but repairs to a berth there mean they have returned to Ramsgate for the time being.
The High Court has since ruled that the ban by Thanet Council was unlawful, meaning it will have to pay compensation to the exporters.
