Video shows fox cubs held near hunt kennels

Police in North Yorkshire are investigating after video footage showed 16 fox cubs being held in a barn near hunt kennels.

The images were filmed by the League Against Cruel Sports, which alleges that the cubs were being raised to be hunted.

Fox hunting with dogs was made illegal in 2004. The hunt says it is assisting the police and is confident that no-one connected with the hunt has committed any offence.

The BBC's rural affairs correspondent Claire Marshall reports.
