Activist was 'trying to gather photographic evidence'

An anti badger cull activist, who was arrested after scaling a fence at a government site, has told ITV News that he was trying to gather photographic evidence.

Jay Tiernan, who runs the Stop The Cull campaign group, said he had heard reports of more than 200 "rusty cages" and "industrial sized fridges" being prepared to hold dead badgers.

Soon after, he was filmed scaling a barbed wire fence into the site before being arrested.
