Live export trade back at Ramsgate port

Live animal exports have resumed from Ramsgate amid protests by campaigners as the lorries passed through the port.

The exports had moved to Dover but problems with a berth there led to shipments resuming from Ramsgate.

RSPCA inspectors were there to monitor the welfare of the animals.

Patrick Hamby, RSPCA chief inspector, told BBC reporter Peter Whittlesea that government animal health officers thoroughly inspected the lorries and were satisfied with what they saw.
