Members of David Cameron's local hunt in Oxfordshire have admitted hunting foxes illegally.

Richard Sumner and Julian Barnfield of the Heythrop Hunt, which the Prime Minister has previously ridden with, pleaded guilty to charges brought by the RSPCA.

They involved unlawfully hunting a wild fox with dogs on four separate occasions during the 2011/12 season.
