HSA news release 18th March 1995

Ten saboteurs were arrested today in what campaigners are claiming was a carefully sprung trap by Sussex Police to "show them who's boss". Some fifteen saboteurs had held a peaceful banner demonstration at the Chiddingfold, Leconfield and Cowdray Foxhunt's meet at the Ship Inn, Harting, near Midhurst, and had gone on to follow the hunt.
