THE BATTLE OF ALDI CAR PARK
Furious customers of Aldi supermarket in Haverhill stormed the store after discovering their cars had been clamped.
One man got into the clampers’ car and refused to leave until the cars were released.
Police were called as the drama unravelled.
Linda Chamber had her car clamped while she was shopping. She said she would never use the store again.
The clampers refused to give their names, but said they were acting as a deterrent and did not want to victimise people.
HUNT VOWS TO DEFY NEW BAN ON HUNTING

The Countryside Alliance claimed that a majority of rural people were opposed to the hunting ban.
Jeremy Kiddy of the Thurlow Hunt said: “the law is unworkable.”
