Boxing Day hunt in Hawstead as debate in Parliament rumbles on

Hawstead Boxing Day Hunt

Hawstead Boxing Day Hunt

The traditional Boxing Day Suffolk Hunt took place this week at Hawstead as a fresh row brews in Parliament.

The coalition is due to put forward a free vote on whether to overturn the existing ban on hunting with dogs.

But they admit there is little chance of such a vote overturning the ban.

It has been illegal since 2005 to hunt animals with dogs. Many hunts like the Suffolk Hunt pictured use a drag hunt instead which is legal.
