Horse & Hound news quiz: The week that was

  • Incorrect

    The Crawley and Horsham hunt’s High Court bid to ban hunt protesters from land in West Sussex ground to a temporary and unexpected halt on Monday after it was revealed the judge due to hear the case had voiced his strong opposition to hunting when he was a Labour MP.

    Lawyers for the hunt were seeking an injunction against the West Sussex Wildlife Protection group and its principal activists, who they say have caused harassment to the hunt’s staff and followers.

    But, just as an expected four-day hearing was due to begin, Mr Justice Ross Cranston adjourned the case in dramatic circumstances after ruling he could not hear it because of statements he made in his previous vocation as a Labour Party MP.
