ECHO, February 24, 2005 THOUSANDS TURN OUT TO SUPPORT THURLOW HUNTERS
More than 350 horses and riders descended on Tattersalls in Newmarket to defy the anti-hunting laws.
Members of the Thurlow Hunt were joined by an estimated 5,000 people who turned out to show their support for the hunters.
Jeremy Kiddy of the Thurlow Hunt said the day went well and described hunting as a ‘golden thread’ which ‘runs through the fabric of the countryside’.
Conservative MP, Jim Paice, questioned the government’s ability to stop fox hunting.
WATCH OUT FOR MORE CCTV CAMERAS
New digital CCTV cameras were on their way to Haverhill as part of a £340,000 upgrade of CCTV in the town.
The cameras were to replace the eight analogue ones already located around the town.
The exact number and locations of the new cameras hadn’t been finalised, but it was thought that Howe Road, the Chalkstone Community Centre, Mill Road and Quaker Lane.
