Militant farmers to march on London

By FWi staff

MILITANT farmers are planning a mass rally in London next month and have threatened to march through the capital even if they are refused permission by police.

The march, timetabled for 18 November, is being organised by Welsh and West Country livestock producers who recently blockaded the two Severn bridges.

The farmers have asked the Metropolitan Police to sanction the rally – but insist that the march will go ahead anyway.
