Sellafield 'should back down' over deer cull

Campaigners have held another protest outside Sellafield nuclear site about plans to cull dear which are trapped between two security fences.

Sellafield says it has received independent advice from leading experts stating the most humane option is to kill the animals.

But protesters say wildlife charities have offered to try and get the deer out alive.

"Sellafield should back down, do the popular thing, the correct thing, the humane thing."
