ANTI-HUNTING activists are planning to stage a protest outside Wiltshire Police headquarters following allegations an officer had ties to two fox hunting groups.

PC Cheryl Knight recently announced on the Wiltshire Rural Crime Team’s Facebook page that she was taking up a new role with the unit and encouraged people to contact her about equestrian issues.

But the post received a backlash, with hundreds of social media users commenting, after photos were shared which allegedly showed PC Knight at both the Avon Vale and Beaufort fox hunts.
