Live animal exports return to Ramsgate

Tags:

Last week dozens of demonstrators gathered at the Port of Ramsgate to protest about the resumption of live animal exports. Campaigners gathered at the port ahead of the ferry’s scheduled berthing at 9am.

The campaigners are demonstrating against the resumption of live animal exports from the Port of Ramsgate.

Thanet District Council, which owns the port, was judged in the High Court to have breached European Law by banning the live animal exporters from using its facilities. The council will now have to pay some £1.5 million in compensation and costs.

The return of the trade follows a two-week trial at Dover Magistrates Court last month where the export company and its owner were fined £9,000 and forced to pay costs of £10,000 for breaches of animal welfare law.

The news comes just a week after a High Court judge paved the way for exporters to claim up to £1.5million in compensation after Thanet council banned live exports from port in September 2012.
