Dozens of animal rights activists marched outside parliament today in protest at the government's planned reforms on fox hunting.
A controversial vote on whether to relax the current hunting ban was due to take place tomorrow but has now been postponed after it emerged the SNP would block the reforms.
Celebrities including Queen guitarist Brian May, Ricky Gervais, Morrissey, Sadie Frost and Stella McCartney have all backed the campaign to keep it in place.
