Case against Heythrop huntsman dropped

  • The RSPCA has dropped its private prosecution against Heythrop huntsman Julian Barnfield.

    The charity had accused Mr Barnfield of unlawful hunting on two occasions during the 2010-11 season, an accusation Mr Barnfield denied.

    But the charity offered no evidence and, on Friday, 3 August, notified Mr Barnfield’s solicitor that it was dropping the case.
