Cornish animal sanctuary's campaign to end pet monkey trade

The actor Stephen Fry is supporting a Cornish charity's campaign to end the trade in pet monkeys. The Wild Futures Monkey Sanctuary in Looe has also had support from South East Cornwall MP Sheryll Murray, who wants more rigorous checks on thousands that are kept in as pets in the UK.
