Animal Rebellion activists have cut off the milk supply to the Midlands and South of England following a weekend of protests in UK supermarkets.
The group has created blockades at 4 Key Dairy Distribution Centres.
Since 5am this morning, Sunday, September 4, groups of Animal Rebellion supporters stopped and climbed onto company trucks outside facilities.
Others trespassed inside company facilities, climbing up onto milk silos and the sites' loading bays after the activists received no response from a letter delivered to Downing Street in August warning of these protests. According to the group, the dairy blocks are happening in Droitwich, Aylesbury, Severnside and Bridgwater.
