Protesters picket Farmers Ferry as it loads
By Johann Tasker in Dover
ANIMAL rights campaigners this morning (Friday) picketed the port of Dover in protest at live animal exports.
About 40 protesters demonstrated against the Farmers Ferry ship, Cap Afrique, which makes its first sailing of the season this afternoon.
Ten lorries carrying livestock, including both sheep and pigs, entered the port while protesters shouted abuse.
