Newport Boxing Day hunt marred by violent clashes
Violence broke out at a traditional Boxing Day hunt between hunt supporters and protesters.
The annual Tredegar Farmers' Boxing Day Hunt was marred by clashes in Bassaleg, Newport, between some of the 200 or more people watching the start.
Onlookers, including a young boy, were almost trampled by horses that were startled by the noise outside the Tredegar Arms pub.
Gwent Police had to separate the sides but confirmed no arrests were made.
Riders in hunting pink and packs of hounds set out under cloudy skies to maintain a tradition going back hundreds of years.
The hunt was following scent trails laid in advance to comply with the 2004 Hunting Act forbidding the hunting of foxes with hounds.
However video footage has emerged of blows being struck between those clearing a path for the animals and anti-hunt demonstrators.
The horses appeared scared as they made their way between the crowds. One backed into the crowd as the rider struggled to keep control while another was seen to barge into a man and boy.
The League Against Cruel Sports claim some hunts still chase and kill wildlife.
