ANIMAL rights activists have been demonstrating outside Thornbury's luxury Castle Hotel as part of a campaign targeting establishments serving foie gras.

Around half a dozen placard-waving members of a Bristol-based group picketed the hotel's outer entrance in protest against the French duck or goose liver pate - production of which is claimed to involve significant cruelty.

Sgt Craig Ogborne, of Thornbury police, said officers were present to monitor the demonstration.

"A joint operation was put in place involving police and hotel management to ensure that order was maintained and also that people could exercise their right to make peaceful protest.

"There were no incidents and no arrests were made."
